Our Upcoming Meeting Dates

Friends of the Library
Thursday, June 2, 2022
6:30 P.M. 

Looking for ways to help the library by volunteering?
Come to the next Friends of the Library meeting 
as they plan various ways to volunteer and assist the library.

Who are we? 
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 such as the summer reading finale, Fall Festival, and Evening with Santa.

Mission Statement:
The Limestone Township Library District Friends of the Library support and advocate for
the patrons and staff of the Limestone Township Library District by contributing to library programming, fundraising and enhancing the appearance of our library and
community in the spirit of friendship.

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 added new public access computers, and redesigned the entry area which included new artwork, chairs, and book carts for our year-round Book Sale. We have 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

Above all, friendship is a relationship…
