During the month of March the Friends will be working to increase our membership. If you are a Friend, please encourage other library users you know to join us. Applications can be found on the "Membership" page of this site, and at the circulation and children's room desks in the Library. We would love to have more active members as well, so if you are already a Friend, consider coming to our meetings, or volunteering to help at one of our events. We'd love to see you!
