  • Book sales 
  • Flavor Fest , Silent Auction and Wine tasting
  • Online pasta fundraisers
  • Strawberry Festival Booth
  • Donations to support the new building project

Friends groups can make the difference between a budget increase and a budget cut for their libraries. As much money as Friends raise through book sales and other activities, a 1% increase in your library’s budget can add up to tens of thousands of dollars or more depending on the size of your library’s budget. Not only that, but many libraries across the country owe their new additions or new buildings to an effective advocacy campaign waged by the Friends to ensure community support. You can make a long lasting and significant difference for your library through advocacy.

Thank you for your support
