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.
*Memberships are for one year from date of joining
