Friends of the Library

The Friends of the Library group helps by providing funds that are used for programs, materials, and other projects, such as our Reading Garden.  Group members cover many of the volunteer opportunities that are required for our programs. 

The Library's mission: connect community, provide access, share resources

Mission and Policies

Mission and Policies

The library mission and all policies that govern the library have been approved by the library board of trustees.  Summaries and full text policies can be found here.

Library Staff

Our staff is dedicated to providing the best possible service to our community.  They create and execute programming for all ages, recommend books and other materials, help with reference and are available to offer support through all services the library provides.  The library would not run without them.


The Library was established in 1911, at the urging of Miss Maud LeRoy to the Tuesday Club, which was in favor of the opening.  Along with a brief history of the library, other key pieces of city history and the cemetery walk brochures can be found on the History page.
