Friends of the Casa Grande Library
40 Years And Still Going Strong PDF Print E-mail

In February of 1975 the volunteer organization known as The Friends of the Casa Grande Library was formed and held their first meeting on February 19 at the home of the new President.

The Friends organization was established to promote the library through fundraising; acquisition of endowments and grants; and, to familiarize citizens with the services provided by the library.

Over these many years, the Friends of the Library has purchased bookracks, record racks, display cases, furniture, computer systems, pictures for the walls, iPads, along with providing funds to assist with the remodeling of the Main Library. In the future the Friends is providing funds for the new MakerSpace at the Vista Library and the new Overdrive Advantage Account which provides quicker access to electronic books only at the Casa Grande Libraries.

The mission of the Friends is to develop resources to support library services and programs, promote adult literacy, and encourage enjoyment of reading, lifelong learning, and community involvement.

The Friends seeks to recruit people for the programs, such as Book Sales, the Summer Reading Program, and any events at the Library which need volunteer help to succeed. They also are looking for individuals who would be interested in serving on the Friends Board whereby they would assist in fundraising and establishing new and updated programs for the means of raising awareness of the Friends and their importance to the library.
