  • To encourage gifts, memorials, and endowments for the benefit of library services. The Friends encourage donations of books and other materials, as well as these larger financial contributions for the purchase of special materials or building, operation and maintenance needs.
  • To assist the Library in publicizing knowledge of its collections and services and informing members and the public about library related programs.
