The vision of the Friends organization is to "Build a Better Library" bringing the community together, inspiring personal growth, and transforming lives through knowledge and literacy.


The mission of the Friends is to support the Bosler Memorial Library through fundraising, promoting public awareness and volunteerism.


The Friends of the Bosler Library, established in 1957, work to promote advocation of the library and its resources and to provide library funding.


We are a separate entity from the Library and have our own by-laws and financial reporting and auditing.  Your membership in the Friends organization is not the same as your financial donations to the Library's annual giving campaign.

Membership Matters. Join us. Together we make better Friends!


Being a Friends member makes many great things possible for the Library and your community.


Consider joining forces with Friends of Bosler Memorial Library by becoming a Friend member. Our collective force is a major financial contributor to the Library. Between the funds raised through our used book store, the Bookery, and the memberships received by library supporters like you, we can continue to meet some of the financial needs of the Library.


All Friends who renew or become new members in 2018, receive a BOGO coupon to the Bookery and a small gift, & the quarterly newsletter, Bosler & Friends, as thanks for supporting us. Different levels of giving are listed on the downloadable membership application. Each level of giving has its unique benefits. Thank you, as always, for supporting your library through the Friends of Bosler Memorial Library. Your membership is vital to the health and success of the Library.
