Friends of the Escanaba Public Library
Friends of the Escanaba Public Library

In 1988, a group of library supporters joined together to establish the Friends of the Escanaba Public Library. With a dedicated 15-member board and countless volunteers, the Friends have provided support to the Library in a number of ways.

Through contributions from the public in the form of memorial and commemorative gifts, the Friends supplement the Library's regular budget with the purchase of books and special supplies. Every year the Friends provide generous support to the Library's Summer Reading Program and other activities in the Children's Room.

Call the Library at 789-7323 for information.
