Friends of the Library (FOTL) was formed in July 1971 as a non-profit organization to help raise funds to purchase items and books not in the library's budget. Seeing a need for energetic, nonprofit work in this area, we formed our organization to provide sensible solutions. We've consistently grown since then, all thanks to the helping hands of this amazing community!
We love our members, so feel free to visit during normal business hours.
