Friends of the Library

Who are the Friends?

The Friends of the Fremont Public Library is the major fundraising arm of the library's Foundation, a 501c3 organization.  The Friends believe that a good public library is vital to the intellectual, cultural and social growth of our community.

What do the Friends do?

  • We organize and maintain the “Book Nook,” offering gently-used titles for sale, including books, movies on DVD and VHS, audiobooks, and music CDs.
  • We coordinate our popular book sales with donations of materials from our community.  Currently, we offer a book sale the second Saturday of each month from 10:00-4:30, and Sunday from 1:00-4:30, on the second floor.
  • We assist at special Library functions and sponsor special programs and library projects.

When do the Friends Meet?

Join us at our next meeting to see what we’re all about.  We meet the second Wednesday of each month at 1:00 p.m. Questions? Call (847) 918-3247.
