The Friends of the Jefferson County Public Library is an organization founded in 1982 for the purpose of providing a channel for public support for the Library. It also helps to focus attention on library services and facilities. The Friends are also organized to encourage bequests and gifts to the public library.
Funds are derived from memberships, the annual used book sale and donations.
As an organization, we intend to support the public library in the following ways:
by providing for items of equipment, such as a microform reader-printer or a Dial-A-Story Program which may be outside the range of the library’s budget
by providing funds to sponsor special library programs such as speakers, childrens and young adult programs, and author receptions
by providing for memorial gifts for the purchase of books, equipment, or resource materials.
