The Friends of the Pine Island Public Library, a non-profit volunteer organization, vigorously pursues a program to develop community awareness and support for the library.
It provides cultural enrichment for the community, raises funds to enhance library services and purchases library equipment and supplies.
In recent years the Friends have purchased new furniture for the children's section, purchased a book carousel, a glass display case and a wheelchair for library use.
The group's ongoing programs include sponsoring local and national author programs, purchasing children's book bags and support of the adult and children's library programs. They also provide supplies.
These efforts are funded through the sale of T-shirts note cards and books.
To achieve all these things, the library needs friends.
