The Friends of the McKinley Memorial Library is a non-profit organization which raises funds to support the Library's needs for materials and programs.
McKinley Memorial Library and the Board of Trustees recognize and thank the Friends of McKinley Memorial Library for their help and support! We are grateful for the Friends continuing support of the StoryWalk at Stephens Park, the McKinley Memorial Music on the Lawn summer concert series, and other programs here at McKinley Memorial Library.
Money from membership dues and annual book sales helps to support Library activities and services. The Friends are also dedicated to promoting use of the library and the McKinley Birthplace Home.
