Support your Library by becoming a member or volunteer of the Friends.
The Friends of the Library (FOL) are a support group for the Library and we manage the Evergreen Bookshop. We provide financial assistance by supplementing the library’s income in the purchase of specific equipment and materials for library use. Friends provide volunteer assistance for special events including the annual Summer Library Program, legislative events, and special projects. Anyone can be a Friend of the Library.
Individual membership: $3.00 annually
Family membership: $5.00 annually
