FOL collected books from the community, as well as books from the library. All books are lightly used and in good condition. New books are brought in throughout the day, which means the selection varies from day to day.
“We really encourage the library system here, they are wonderful! Says FOL President Fernie Coe. “They have wonderful children’s programs, and the more we can earn, the more we can support them and the more they can give back to the community.
The MCL organizes various community programs throughout the year. FOL helps fund authored book conferences, reptile exhibitions and the summer reading program.
