Friends of Grinnell Library


Mission Statement:

The Friends of Grinnell Library serve the community by assisting the library through financial support and volunteer activities.


Meetings are held on the first Thursday of the month at 6pm at the Library. New members are welcome, so come and share your ideas. We are an independent 501(c)(3) organization, separate from the Grinnell Public Library District. You can help support our organization by shopping online through Amazon Smile – click/tap on the Amazon logo – because a percentage of your purchase will benefit the Friends of the Grinnell Library.




Save the date: Mahjongg Tournament April 30, 2022!

The next meeting will be held on October 7 at 6pm.

New members always welcome!
