Friends of the Library
"... to 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 children.|
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:

meeting per year. Friends are encouraged to select projects which interest
them and/or be active in other ways in the Friends Organization.
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.
