Membership in the Friends is open to anyone who wishes to join. Dues are $2.00 for an individual, $5.00 for a family, $25.00 for a supporting membership, or whatever amount one chooses to contribute. This money is used to support ongoing programs and occasional mailing costs.
An annual business meeting with a program, election of officers and any other business that might arise is held in February. Other meetings are held periodically to plan events.
The Book Group meets on the 2nd Thursday of each month from September to June at 7 pm at the Library. (For a list of books planned for this year go to the SFL Book Group link)
The Knitting Group meets on the 3rd Thursday of each month from September to June at 7 pm at the Library.
