Monroe Library - Friends of the Library

Who we are

The mission of the Friends of the Monroe Library is to support and promote public awareness of library services, the facility, and the library staff in positive ways.

Our goal is to inspire and motivate our community to recognize and use the library system to promote literacy, education, cultural and intellectual interaction, and for the creative exchange of ideas.

We strive to complement Sno-Isle Libraries in a partnership that directly enriches the local community and all of its members.

What we do

The Friends of the Monroe Library is a not-for-profit, volunteer organization providing essential support to your local library.

Friends' funding enhances library services. Examples include:

  • Summer reading support for all ages
  • Puzzles and toys for the children's area
  • Programs for all ages
  • Participation in community activities and organizations

Funding comes from:

  • Membership dues
  • Ongoing and annual book sales
  • Monetary gifts

Join us!

You can never have too many books...or too many Friends! Need an excuse to spend a little more time at the Monroe Library? Looking for some bookworm-types to chat and hang out with? Thinking about how to add some experience to your resume? Interested in making a difference in your community?

The Friends of Monroe Library needs you. We are looking for fun and friendly bookworm types who know the value of a thriving public library. Believe it or not, this is one volunteering position where you can help out as much or as little as you like and still see the effect your efforts make in our community.

Please contact a Monroe Librarian at the Monroe Library or Angie Hocking, President of the Friends of Monroe Library, for more information.

When we meet

Every third Tuesday of the month from 6:30-7:30 pm in the Main Meeting Room of the Monroe Library.
 
It had been startling and disappointing to me to find out that story books had been written by people,
that books were not natural wonders, coming up of themselves like grass.
