Friends of Grinnell Library

Mission Statement:

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

Los Amigos de la Biblioteca Grinnell sirve la comunidad por asistir la biblioteca a través del apoyo financiero y actividades voluntarios.

 

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 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.
