Join Friends of the Library

Friends of the Library is a nonprofit advocacy organization which supports the Library. Our volunteer members advocate, educate, and raise funds on behalf of the Library, its patrons, and the community.


 The Frends of the Library are a big access to the Library."The Friends raise funds to be used by the Library for activities not ordinarily covered under the Library's operating budget since ongoing Library operations are paid for by city and county dollars. Such activities is, The Summer Reading Program, several of our magazines and the extra money we have to pay on some of our grants.The Friends currently have about  8 members."


  • Fund raising activities: Tealess Tea, Book and Puzzle Sales (year around) and Summer Reading logs that each paticipant can get grab bags.
  • Officers: Cindy Butler:President, Marilyn Schurman: Vice President,Roberta Burnett; Treasurer, & Billi Butler: Secretary.  
  • Meeting dates and times: The Friends meet with each Library Board Meeting; every fourth Monday of the Month, at approximatley 5:PM.
  • How to join: Anyone may join the Friends of the Lacona Public Library by calling the Library and giving their name address and phone number and The Friends Secretay will call you and tell you  the date and time of the next meeting.
