Why does the library need friends?
Although tax supported, public libraries need
many additional items for which funding is not
allocated.  F.O.L.K. provides supplementary
funds for such items as:
  • Circulation materials
  • Children's Programs
  • Staff Education
  • Support for Summer Reading Program
  • Community Adult Programs
