Friends of the Library

Who are the Friends of the Library?

They are the men and women behind the scenes who donate their time and talents to improve the services of our library.

Their fundraising activities include:

  • Annual membership dues
  • Year-Round Used Book Sales
  • Summer Flea Market Used Book Sale
  • Annual Wine Tasting Held in October
  • Annual Cookie Walk Held in November

All proceeds of the Friends’ fundraising directly support the Boulder Junction Public Library. Examples of items the Friends have purchased include:

  • Computers and equipment
  • Shelving
  • Subscriptions
  • Print materials

Becoming a Member

The Friends are always looking for new members. Some members pay annual dues and participate in fundraising activities. Other members are unable to give of their time, so they give an annual monetary gift to support the efforts of the Friends. If you would like to become a member, please call or stop by the library.

The Friends meet every other month, January through November, on the 2nd Monday at 1:30 pm in the library. Please consider joining this beneficial organization.

The Friends of the Library created the Neighbor to Neighbor program series several years ago to highlight the interesting talents and hobbies of local residents. Programs are held the fourth Thursday of the month from May through October. All programs are free and held in the Boulder Junction Community Center. Refreshments will be provided. For questions, please call the library at 715-385-2050.
