Who we are
The Friends of the Liberal Memorial Library is a volunteer organization dedicated to the active promotion and support of the Liberal Memorial Library. The purpose is to build and maintain an association of persons interested in the library, its services, facilities and needs; to develop supplemental funding to assist in promoting the use and enjoyment of the library by the community.

What we do

The Friends of the Liberal Memorial Library support events throughout the year to benefit the Library and the Liberal community.
Most notably the Friends sponsor and put together our yearly book sale, assist with summer reading, and help to provide funding to bring in quality entertainers for children’s programming.
More important than funding is the idea that Friends of the Liberal Memorial Library volunteer and give of their own time to help with library programs and events.

As you know, many people question the need for libraries in this age of advanced technology, but libraries are more relevant than ever before. In these difficult economic times libraries provide access to resources that may otherwise be inaccessible for some people. Libraries can work hand in hand with teachers by providing story times, materials, and programs aimed at reinforcing literacy skills learned in the classroom.

Computer classes at the library can help those entering or re-entering the work force be competitive in the job search. Those class members can then use the computers to search for new job opportunities. Not to mention the books, movies, music and fun adult programs offered. The list of library benefits goes on and on. The Friends can help by supporting and promoting the library and its programs.

The end of last year, a small group met to lay the ground work for reactivating our Friends of the Library group and we are excited about the future of not only our group but of our library as a whole. Your voice will be an important part of the group and we want to hear your ideas.

It is our hope that you will be able to join us for our initial meeting at the library on January 22nd, 2015 at 6:30 pm. At this meeting we will begin the process of electing officers for the year as well as creating a vision and purpose for what we want our group to be.

Remember, this Thursday, January 22 at 6:30 in the Cooper-Clark room. Bring a friend and we’ll see you there!
