The vision of the Friends organization is to "Build a Better Library" bringing the community together, inspiring personal growth, and transforming lives through knowledge and literacy.


The mission of the Friends is to support the Bosler Memorial Library through fundraising, promoting public awareness and volunteerism.


The Friends of the Bosler Library, established in 1957, work to promote advocation of the library and its resources and to provide library funding.


We are a separate entity from the Library and have our own by-laws and financial reporting and auditing.  Your membership in the Friends organization is not the same as your financial donations to the Library's annual giving campaign.
