Our Mission:

The purposes of the Friends are to enhance community interest for the Library as a prime cultural and educational asset; to focus public attention on its resources and services; to encourage and receive gifts, endowments and bequests to the Library; to raise funds in support of the Library's collection, services, operations, and facilities; and to support and cooperate with the Library in developing library services and programs for the community.
