- Library staff used those 2012 funds to purchase DVDs, books, reference materials such as Online Consumer Reports, movie licensing for more events, and technology needed to expand e-book offerings in the future.
- The Friends again focused on funding library initiatives for students such as the popular summer reading program (with 900 participants!) and Battle of the Books. In addition, we supported reading incentive programs in Farmington schools, providing funds for ‘One School, One Book’ and ‘Book Parade’.
- The Friends also make author visits possible, such as the ‘On Becoming a Writer’ program with bestselling author Thrity Umrigar (The highly successful program brought in over 200 people from the community in April 2013).
