The Friends of the Library (FOL) is a nonprofit organization that holds used book sales to raise funds for the Library as well as to recycle publications. Funds are used to support the Library’s summer reading program for children, sponsor the FOL Book Discussion Group, purchase supplies and publications, and provide other help requested by the Library, the press release said. Membership forms are available in the library lobby or at the sale.
