The Friends of the Library is a voluntary, non-profit organization formed to provide support services to the Irvin L. Young Memorial Library.

The Friends of the Library sponsors several programs each spring and fall. All events are free and open to the public.

Friends' Shop
The Friends organization sponsors a "Friends' Shop" in the library where a wide selection of used books is available. In addition, the shop offers posters, book bags, note cards, bookmarks, special magnifying lens, and other reading-related items.

Volunteers are needed to operate the Friends' Shop. The shop is open several afternoons and at least one evening weekly and a few hours each weekend. Anyone interested in volunteering should contact Jim Leaver at 262-473-5602.

Volunteer Opportunities
Volunteers are always welcome to contact any of the committee members or library staff for more information about special projects.

A huge, well-stocked used book sale is held each year in the late summer/early fall for two weeks and a smaller book sale is held in the spring for one week. Many volunteers are needed to perform such tasks as planning, sorting and pricing of materials. Your help is needed and appreciated.
