Friends of the Library


The mission of the Friends of the Library (FOLKS) is to enhance our library's programs, services, and resources through our volunteer efforts and by enlightening our community about what our library has to offer. FOLKS is a 501(c)3 tax exempt organization. We support the library through annual fundraising efforts and the library's ongoing book sales. Funds raised have supported projects & programs, such as:

  • Collection development at the library
  • Summer Reading Program
  • Fox Cities Reads
  • Fox Cities Book Festival
  • AV equipment
  • Beautification projects for the library & grounds

Help Us Raise Money for the Library!

There are a variety of ways you can help raise money for the library:
