FRIENDS OF THE EARLY PUBLIC LIBRARY

 

WHO WE ARE

The Friends of the Library is a volunteer organization that helps plan and raise funds for community events hosted by the Early Public Library. 

 

WHAT WE DO

Thanks to the time and effort of our current group members, the Friends group has been able to: 

  • Host an adult Easter egg hunt with free prizes for all attendees

  • Hand out free books to children after the town Easter egg hunt

  • Hold an Easter and Halloween coloring contest with prizes for the winners

  • Purchase t-shirts, bags, socks, and other accessories for a hands-on tie dye activity

  • Supply snacks and craft supplies for the library’s weekly story time

  • Organize city-wide garage sales

  • Award a tablet as a grand prize for the library’s summer reading program

  • Host a Halloween party with games, crafts, and lots of candy

  • Purchase Wii controllers for the library’s gaming area

  • Host a Christmas party where area children could sit on Santa’s lap and receive a Christmas present

 

HOW YOU’VE HELPED

Thanks to the support from our amazing community, we have had success with our fundraising efforts! Our fundraising events over the past year include:

  • Crossroads Days Friday evening meal

  • Crossroads Days bags tournament

  • Virtual 5K

  • Holiday gift basket auctions

  • Daddy daughter dance

 

BECOME A FRIEND

We are always looking to grow our group membership! We hold meetings on the second Tuesday of each month at 6PM at the library. We only ask for a $5 membership fee per year, and you may volunteer by serving on the Board, planning events, helping at events, or providing bars/cookies for events.
