Become a Friend of the Emporia Public Library TODAY! The Friends raise money through book sales, donations, and FOL membership dues.  The library benefits in many ways because of the efforts of the Friends who give thousands of dollars to the library each year for programs. Some members volunteer to assist with library programs for area seniors, adults, teens, and children throughout the year.  The Friends are especially proud of supporting the library with funds for


  • summer reading programs for all ages

  • summer Kids’ Koncerts series

  • library newsletter

  • promotional items and refreshments for library programs

  • the annual volunteer luncheon for the library board, Friends volunteers, and other library volunteers

  • BookPage magazine

  • multiple copies of books for book discussions

  • staff development activities

  • accu-cut dies for library bulletin board use

  • book baskets for library use

  • Children’s Room furniture

  • annual donation to the Emporia Public Library Endowment 

    and more!
