About Us


The Friends of the Monona Public Library is a community support group that was organized in 1981 to improve library services and facilities through activities that are beyond the scope of the regular staff and budget [see by-laws]. We believe that the survival of the public library is essential to our society.

The Friends group strives to promote knowledge of, and interest in our library, as well as to enhance its value to the community. To help the library develop and extend services, the Friends group works to purchase materials and equipment with money raised through membership dues, an annual fall book sale and tax-deductible gifts. Friends work enhances programs that promote literacy and the love of books, and helps develop new programs that will advance the goals of the Monona Public Library.

By joining the Friends you will join other concerned citizens dedicated to promoting the value of books, libraries and literacy. Members may serve on the board or volunteer to work at the book sale or other events. Even if you don't choose to volunteer you will have the satisfaction of knowing that you have joined others in showing strong support for your library.
