Thank you to our Friends

The Winnebago Public Library will be spent the week of October 23-29, 2016, celebrating its Friends of the Library group as part of the annual celebration of National Friends of Libraries Week. The current Friends of the Winnebago Public Library were established in 2003 and have raised to date in excess of $20,000 for the library. “I think most patrons would be surprised to learn how many of the services and programs they enjoy are supported by the Friends,” said library director Katie Schmoyer.
