Crown Point Community Library

Library Friends

Our Mission:

To enhance and promote the use and enjoyment of the library. To raise funds to support library programs, services and to help fund items not generally covered in the library’s regular operating budget.


Our monthly meetings have resumed in-person at 10 a.m. in meeting room two at the Crown Point location, beginning June 8, 2021.

Vaccinated individuals are not required to wear face masks. Unvaccinated individuals are asked to continue wearing a face mask.


Accepting book donations

Public donations will now be accepted at the front desk at the Crown Point location during regular library hours.

Please review the list of items the Library does not accept.  If you have a large number of books to be donated (more than two bags or boxes), please make arrangements by calling (219) 306-4599.

 


Join The Friends

(Update 5/2021) Current members from 2019 will have their membership extended to January 1, 2022. 

When you join us, you’ll:

  • Sponsor programs and literacy 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 ongoing 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!
