Friends of the Enterprise Library

Stacks Image 5

The Friends were re-established in the spring of 1995 after a brief hiatus due to the renovation of a new home for the library. Interested volunteers revamped the by-laws, filled the board positions, and went to work.

Purpose
• To maintain an association of people interested in books and libraries.
• To focus public attention on library services, facilities, and needs.
• To generate funds for library support and improvement.
• To stimulate gifts of books, magazines, desirable collections, endowments, and bequests for the Enterprise Public Library.

For the past 20 years a small corps of volunteers have done just that. Our primary fund raising events are book sales. Coupled with membership, the Friends have raised over $100,000 which has been used by the library for everything from supporting the Summer Reading Program to providing the software that runs the library.

There are approximately 115 members. The board of directors for 2015 is:

President: Harriet Schmitz
Vice-President: Peggy Samuels
Secretary: Linda Gordon
Treasurer: Kimmie Stafford
Newsletter: Ginger Hanson
Publicity: Laurel Akin
Membership Chair: Debra Gibson
Member-at-Large: Lynne Reeves
