READING ROCKS….

Reading Rocks can now be found hidden around Milbank thanks to the Friends of the Grant County Library Group. The rocks could be hiding anywhere and children who find one can bring it to the Grant County Public Library for special prizes. If you are a bit older and find one, share it with a child and bring them to the Library for that special prize. Keep your eyes open, you never know where you might find one.

Friends of the Library is a nonprofit group of volunteers who love the library and work together with the library staff to promote the Library and activities for all ages. The Friends are always looking for new faces to join them in their endeavors. The Friends of Grant County Library are now a 501 c 3 nonprofit entity and any donations made to the Friends is tax deductible.

Who are the Friends of the Grant County Public Library?

We’re people just like you who appreciate the library and the many ways it serves us and members of our community.  Volunteerism and proceeds will support projects to enhance the library’s collection, expand community awareness of  library services and support projects to meet new needs.

The “Friends of the Grant County Public Library” is a non-profit organization established in 2011.  Our purpose is to encourage and promote community participation and support for the activities and programs of the Grant County Library and to assist in the Library’s growth and development.

Through membership, donations and volunteerism, the “Friends of Grant County Public Library” help support library activities for all ages.  Friends may organize special library events such as special book sales, author visits, raffles, luncheons, and more.  Friends groups may assist with already established library programs, promote the library through community events and also apply for grants.  Friends may help fund special projects, work with adult literacy or book delivery programs.

Friends groups promote awareness of the library and what is has to offer throughout the community.  You will meet others who love libraries and know that your contribution will touch the lives of people in our community.

Membership in the “Friends of Grant County Public Library” is open to all interested individuals,   organizations, and businesses.
