Friends of the Library

The Friends of the Josephine-Louise Public Library grew from the concern of local people who recognized the importance of a strong library for our community. The Friends group is a non-profit volunteer organization which was started in 1991. Membership is open to everyone. Please join us, we welcome your support! Annual dues are $2.50 per member or $5.00 per family.
