The Friends of the Library--Adams County

We are a group dedicated to providing assistance to our local library. Since our founding in 1990, we have arranged for speakers, written grants, and held events to welcome library employees and to say thank you when they retire. Our funds helped pay for shelving, computers, the microfilm reader, books, art, and furniture when the new library opened in 2004.  Each year we donate money to the Summer Reading Program to be used for performers and prizes for this important library program.

The Friends of the Library purchased the Coffee Maker in the Reading Room, and pay for the supplies. Be sure to enjoy a cup while reading your favorite book or magazine—your 75-cent purchase helps keep our supplies of coffee, sugar, cups, and creamer available.

Want to Join Us?

The Friends of the Library meet at the library, usually the second Tuesday night during the months of January, March, May, September, November, and December. Meetings last about an hour, and are held in the Library’s Reading Room. Check the Library's Calendar for details.  NEXT MEETING IS TUESDAY, NOV. 13, 2018, at 5:30 pm.

We are an informal and friendly group, not at all intimidating, we promise. Maybe we are a little fanatical about books and reading, but since you clicked on the button for the Friends of the Library, you are probably our kind of person and will fit in fine. Have questions? Please call Margo at 339-7262. She’ll be happy to talk with you.
