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. We are a registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization and all donations are tax-deductible.

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 in the library next to the circulation desk).

2018 Children’s Shopping Day is a Wrap!!!

Childrens Shopping Day 2018

To the folks who so generously donated lovely things from their homes, as well as to the folks who enthusiastically volunteered their time and energy to give the event liftoff, and, of course, to everyone who financially supported the event, – a most sincere thanks. This year’s Children’s Shopping Day was another wonderful success bringing in $1655, all of which will go directly to funding the many museum discount passes that the Pollard offers the public. See you next year!
