Our Purpose:

The principal purpose of the Friends of the Library is to raise added funds for the Jefferson-Madison Regional Library so that:

Proceeds from our Spring and Fall Book Sales benefit the Library’s programs and special projects. Most of the books are donated by members of our communities.
