Who the Friends are

The Friends of the Spring Green Community Library is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization formed to enhance and improve library services to its community.

Their purpose

To support, improve, and enhance our library through programming, fundraising, volunteering, advocacy, and protecting the freedom to read.

What they provide

We try to help the library with things outside of the normal Library budget such as rotating audio books, bike racks, book carts, furniture, computers, special summer programs, program speakers and demonstrations.

How the Friends generate funds

Membership dues, Community-Wide Garage Sales, December Bake Sale, Book bag sales, Chocolate Lab event, and sales of donated books.

When the Friends collect used books

The Friends of the Spring Green Community Library will accept donations of gently used books for resale at the library on the first Saturday of the month (with the exception of December) from 10 am to noon. Proceeds from the sales help support library programs and other amenities. Books smelling of mildew, damaged books, encyclopedias, textbooks or instruction manuals are not accepted. We reserve the right to limit the quantity of items accepted and/or refuse donations that do not meet our needs.

Friends of the library host a Bake and Book Sale in conjunction with Spring Green's Country Christmas weekend. Donations will be accepted for the Friends Annual Bake Sale.

The Friends also provide financial support for library programming.

The Friends of the Spring Green Community Library invite you to join our organization and support our Library. The board typically meets every fourth Monday of each month in the Community Room (but check our calendar for updates). The public is always welcome to our meetings. We also have survey forms available on our bookshelf in the Library. Even if you are not a member, you might have suggestions, might be able to offer a program, or offer your services in some other way.

Thank You to everyone for your continued generous support!
