Meet The Friends

Friends of Library_CPCL_2016

The Friends of the Crown Point Community Library have supported special programs and help to purchase items not generally covered in the library’s regular operating budget. They have made it their mission to enhance and promote the use and enjoyment of the library.

When you join us, you’ll:

  • Sponsor programs and literary initiatives for adults, children, and teens
  • Enable lively cultural events that attract non-traditional library users
  • Volunteer at Library events and book sales
  • Support pro-library advocacy to government officials and the general public

Many Friends volunteer by helping with the monthly and annual book sales, fundraising, and promoting the library. In addition to membership dues, money raised from the Literary Luncheon and book sales support on-going adult, children, and teen events, provide prizes for summer reading programs and help purchase equipment not covered in the general budget.

As a member of the Friends of the Crown Point Library, you’ll be paid back in a thousand ways every year – with children’s smiles, the sincere appreciation of the library’s hardworking staff and the pure satisfaction of knowing you make a difference in your community!
