About the Friends

The Friends of the Clay Center Library is a group of local community members who recognize the vital role the library plays as a community resource.  Friends are responsible for raising awareness of all that the library has to offer to the community.  The Friends also host events to raise money for many library activities and programs.

Why Become a Friend?

Our objectives are:

  • to foster the use of the library and library services
  • to focus public attention on needed library support
  • to stimulate gifts and endowments

We plan projects to raise funds for needed library equipment and to add to the library collections.  Some of our projects have included raffles.  Adopt-A-Book, and our on-going book sale.

We implemented a Meet and Greet program, financially support the Summer Reading program, and offer a Quarterly Newsletter to Friends members.  The group is constantly looking for new fundraising and promotional ideas as well as enthusiastic members who would like to serve on the board of directors.  We meet the second Monday of every month, except June and December, at 6:00 p.m. in the community room located in the basement of the library.
