Friends of the Library

Do you have empty baskets sitting around? We would love to have them for our various fund raisers! Please bring them to the library to happily recycle them.

Who are we? Friends of the Library is a group formed to support and promote the Limestone Township Library's activities. We want to help the library grow in any way we can. We host Book Sales, organize gatherings for the community at the Library. Below is our Mission Statement and how you can help.

“The only way to have a friend is to be one.” –Ralph Waldo Emerson
Mission Statement:
The Limestone Township Library Friends of the Library support and advocate for
the patrons and staff of the Limestone Township Library by contributing to library programming, fundraising and enhancing the appearance of our library and
community in the spirit of friendship…

We are the Friends of the Library. As a nonprofit corporation, we collect and administer gifts, bequests and other monies (outside of local tax receipts) that help make the library’s many programs become an integral part of our community.

These additional funds help our library in purchasing additional books as well as replacing damaged ones. We also support programs including summer reading, fall festival, Evening with Santa, and more.

Above all, friendship is a relationship…

Become a Friend of the Library
The Friends of the Library are people just like you who value the importance of the library. But more than that, we take action. For example, we have begun adding new public access computers, and have redesigned the entry area, including new artwork, chairs, and book carts for our year-round Book Sale. We have also sponsored several wonderful and exciting programs, and volunteer for the semi-annual "big" book sales.
Our funds help support:
-Programs for children and adults
-New computers/technology
-New books and other materials for the library and its patrons
