Friends of the Library

Join the Friends of the Library Today!

It’s easy, inexpensive and fun!

FRIENDS meet every other month for about an hour to plan ways to stimulate library use and to encourage gifts to the library. FRIENDS often help with library events.

Here are a few examples of the FRIENDS at work: The library receives book donations throughout the year. The FRIENDS host a book sale, often in conjunction with a bake sale, two or three times a year. A FRIEND handles the cash box and baking FRIENDS donate baked goods. FRIENDS help with special children's programming and activities and recently brought a special Chasing 4 Life/Storm Chaser program to the library for Family Reading Night. The FRIENDS began the aluminum can recycling donation program at the library. A FRIEND transports the cans to the recycling center. The FRIENDS have sponsored the Western Illinois Touring Theatre company at Colona Grade School with monies collected from book/bake sales and aluminum can recycling.
