Who are the Friends of the McFarland Library?

We are a group of book lovers, information seekers, listeners, viewers and thinkers. We worked hard to help provide McFarland with its first library, and to realize the dream of expanding into the new library. Now that we have a beautiful building and an excellent program, there is still work for the Friends to do.

What do the Friends do?

We are the fundraising and support group for the library and as such have several projects throughout the year, including periodic used book sales and an annual apple pie sale. The money we raise helps to enlarge the collection of regular and large print books, audiobooks, CDs, and DVDs at the library. We sponsor the Summer Reading Program, as well as special programs and guest speakers.

What volunteer opportunities are available with the Friends?

Assistance is needed in the following areas:

  •     Fundraising projects (book sales, apple pie making, etc.)
  •     Service as Friends officers

When do the Friends meet?

Meetings are held on the first Tuesday of each month, at 6:00 p.m. in the library community room. Everyone is welcome — please join us!
