Friends Make A Difference


Funds raised through membership dues and used book sales help the Farmington Friends of the Library give the gift of reading to our community every day. The Friends also receive a small portion of every purchase you make through our Amazon link.

Library staff use these funds to add books, CDs, DVDs, Playaways and Video Games to supplement the Library's planned purchases.

The Friends also sponsor children's reading programs, support student programs, and host special programs and events for all ages throughout the year.

Check the current Info Exchange on our website, or the Friends' Projects page for a complete listing of sponsored events.

The Friends have approved 109,464 to Library services in 2013 to fund:

  • Special Programs for Children and Teens: Battle of the Books, Summer Reading Club, Senior Story Tellers Program, Author Visit, Dr. Seuss' Birthday Party and National Book Week Theatrical Productions . . . along with many other programs

  • Funding support for the Book, DVD and Books on CD Collections for both Adult and Children at both Library buildings

  • And additional miscellaneous Library gifts.

and there will be more, with your help!
