“Friends of the Mondovi Public Library” is a volunteer organization whose members donate time and support to enrich the library’s outreach to the community. Friends’ dues and fundraisers assist in the purchase of items that are beyond the library’s regular budget.
Some Friends also help with events and activities in and outside of the library. “Friends” meetings are the third Tuesday of January, April, July, and October at 5:30PM in the library.
Some volunteer activities that Friends choose to do are: help with book sales, sort and pack book donations, assist with library events, help with story hour, manage the gift certificate program, repair books, assist with the twice annual newsletter, create book displays, decorate the library for seasons and special events, provide refreshments for select activities, and donate special skills for library projects.
Membership in “Friends of the Library” is open to any individual or group who wishes to support the Mondovi Public Library. Membership in FOL only involves paying the dues. Many members, however, also volunteer time, special abilities, and/or other additional services for the support of the library.
Brochures, including a membership form, are available at the library near the circulation desk. Ask the library staff or any member of “Friends” if you have any questions about FOL.
Dues raised from FOL membership is a big part of the money available to “Friends”. Membership dues may be paid at any time, but January officially starts membership enrollment.
