The Friends of the Pollard Memorial Library is a volunteer group dedicated to supporting the library and its programs. Our primary goal is to support the museum pass program. We also sponsor various other programs at the library, such as author programs, genealogy workshops, and movie nights. During this period of virutal and distanced events, we are also supporting the Library’s Grab & Go activities. We are a registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization and all donations are tax-deductible. For businesses who wish to sponsor activities, please contact us at

Our funding comes from membership dues, donations, book sales, bake sales, and other events, as well as from ongoing sales from our book cart (located on the First and Ground floors in the Library next to the circulation desks).
