What We Do

The Friends of the Library provide the Augusta Memorial Library with funds that are used for guest speakers, educational programs, handouts and craft materials, and maintaining our Reading Garden.  Our primary fundraising efforts come from an annual book sale during Augusta’s summer celebration and an annual donation letter.  Periodically we host patron appreciation events that feature door prizes and tasty treats. The Friends are always looking for new members and there are several ways that you can volunteer. Check out our brochure for more details.

Friends President,  Marty Rugotzke
