Welcome to the Winifred Knox Memorial Library Website

Friends of the Library

“Friends of the Library” is a non-profit group who want to support, strengthen, and encourage activities of the library.  Funds are received from donations, book sales, bake sales, and selling the labeled bags found at the library.  These funds have enabled us to purchase holiday decorations, a popcorn machine and its cart, dollhouse, barn and animals and educational toys for the Children’s Department. 


We are always needing extra helping hands for Friends activities. Your involvement is up to you and can be as simple as helping to decorate for the holidays, or getting really involved and joining us for our meetings held a few times through out the year.


Our activities include:

 Book sales
Bake sales
Holiday decorating

Our meetings entail:

Organization of the books sales

Ideas for fund raisers

Helpful items to purchase for the library


If you would like to join us, it's as simple as speaking with one of the staff at the library!


Want to help, but don't know how? It's simple!!

There are sign up sheets for each event at the front desk of the library.

Don't be shy, sign up for one activity or more!!
