The Friends of the Addison Twp Public Library

About the Friends

The Friends of the Addison Twp Public Library was re-energized in 2002. Since then the Friends of the Library has worked to raise funds to support important programs such as the Summer Reading Program and fund equipment such as a new library return box and digital screen. The Friends needs new members to help with planning, organizing and running yearly book sales and annual fundraising events like the Flavor Fest and Silent Auction as well as the Born to Read 5K! Let's be Friends!

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.
