About the Friends

Who we are

The Friends of the Library is a nonprofit organization that supports the St. Michael-Albertville-Hanover Library, its staff and the many library programs and services that benefit our communities. We also support literacy and the joy of reading.

What we do

Support from the Friends of the Library  – through fundraising events and other donations – helps to make possible many of the programs and services offered at the library. The Friends of the Library help fund such important things as:

  • the summer reading programs
  • special events, such as clown shows and educational presentations
  • the purchase of new furniture, equipment, and book collections

The Friends organize two fundraising book sales each year. We also advise and assist the library staff with planning for future growth.
