Friends of the Library

Morton-James Public Library
Nebraska City, Nebraska

The primary purpose of the Friends organization is to be of service to the library and to the community. These needs can range widely, from fundraising to lobbying for a local referendum to providing snacks for children in story hour. Each community is unique and so, therefore, is each Friends organization.

The Friends organization is for people who wish to work with people, for those with special talents, for those who like to work with books and help with library social functions.

A Friends organization can provide an opportunity for individuals to make a recognizable contribution to the community and the library.

Some of the services performed by existing Friends organizations are:

Literacy programs Coffee and refreshments at programs
Christmas open house Christmas decorations
Radio shows Tours of library
Book sales Displays
Exhibit booth at county fair Grounds and shrub maintenance
Parade float Book mending
Genealogy Telephoning
Delivery to the homebound Gift sales
