Who are the Friends of Fredricksen?

logoWe’re your neighbors - young, young-at-heart, working and retired who are dedicated to supporting the Fredricksen by volunteering, advocating for library funding and raising funds to help meet the costs of Fredricksen’s special programs and new equipment. Proceeds from our fundraisers are used in consultation with Library Staff to continue the programming and services offered and to help bring to fruition those in the planning stage. Special thanks to all those who donated books and media for our sales and to those businesses and individuals who donated items and services for our Silent Auction. In 2023, Friends were able to provide $40,830 of financial support to Fredricksen Library.
