support, extend and enhance
the work of the Scott County Public Library"
|Who we are: The Friends of the Scott County Public Library is a nonprofit organization which serves as a support group for the library. Since the founding in 1975 the Friends have provided much needed volunteer staffing, have purchased and donated materials, furnishings and equipment for the library and have provided a wide variety of programming, especially for the children’s library.|
What we do: Friends have worked with other libraries and with the State on legislative issues and have provided valuable public relations assistance to keep the public informed about new acquisitions and technology. Friends have also served as an extension into the community, spearheading many collaborative projects and partnerships.The Friends are active in a variety of ways:.
Promoting literacy in our community is an ongoing priority. The Friend’s “Celebrate with Books” project strives to put a book in the hands of every child, who might not have that opportunity.
Memberships in the Friends can
be active, passive, or selective. A nine member governing
Board is elected annually to conduct the executive functions
of the organization and there is one general membership
meeting per year. Friends may select projects which interest
them or may simply elect to be “silent partners”
Communication: Members are kept informed by newsletters and a monthly library calendar. Friends Board Meetings are held on the second Wednesday of each month at 10 a.m. in the Conference Room at the Scott County Public Library. These board meetings are open to the Friends Membership. Your support is greatly appreciated and along with the Staff and Board of Trustees, help provide a state-of-the-art library for all citizens of Scott County. Becoming a Friend helps a friend, your library, and the community.
