What Do the Friends Do?
As an Active Friend, you can support the library by volunteering to plan projects or events.
Or you can choose to be a Silent Partner who supports the group with a membership payment. Your membership supplies the extra funds our library needs to continue to be a valuable asset to our community.
You can also show your support by purchasing a Friends Book Bag for $10. These are available at the library circulation desks.
You can also support the library by sponsoring a major library event.
You may join online or by form. Please make sure that you complete your current contact information, including telephone number and email address, as this is our preferred form of communication to notify you of programs, events and meetings. Thank you.
Form Just print and fill out the membership application (these forms are also available at the circulation desks at both libraries). It is important that you provide your email address, and mail the completed form to the address below with your dues payment or return it in person to either McKinney library.
