LIBRARY PROGRAMS

PROGRAMS

One of the main objectives of the Friends is to support programs and initiatives of the library. Many of the programs for Children, Teens and Adults offered throughout the year for education and enjoyment are full or partially funded by our group. We hope that you and your family have enjoyed many of them in the past and will begin or continue to do so this coming year. Below is a list of some of the programs that the Friends have supported in the past. Be sure to look for the Friends logo next to supported programs in your issue of the Inside View.
