Funds raised by the Friends provide:phil

  • Books, DVDs and CDs
  • Funds for speakers and refreshments for adult and children’s programs
  • The support and maintenance of a beautiful, welcoming garden
  • Major building enhancements including  new flooring and chairs in the Meeting Room
  • A state-of-the-art digital projector
  • New library furniture, including bookcases, magazine & display racks.
  • Support for the children and teens programs throughout the year



Volunteers are always needed to help on these committees as well as with such activities as baking, graphic design, library work, mailings, programming and the Winter Social. If you are interested in participating on any of these committees or helping with these activities, please contact the Friends by email friendsofthefalls@gmail.com
