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 6 PM) in the non-fiction room of the Grinnell 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 the Grinnell Library’s mission by shopping online through Amazon Smile. Proceeds will benefit the Friends of the Grinnell Library.
