Hello Friends, We need your help. Friends of Ricker Memorial Library is a small group of local volunteers who have been working hard to continue all of the successful and exciting programs that Ricker Memorial Library has to offer. However, with so many fun things going on at the library, we are in desperate need of more volunteers. That is where I am hoping that you will come in. Currently, Friends of Ricker Memorial Library offer a variety of programs to the local community. Have you checked out our free movie night yet? Perhaps you have joined us for one of our potluck suppers or have come in to enjoy a brown bag lunch special. Maybe you joined our summer reading program with your children or are looking forward to our upcoming e-book program. All of these fun, educational, and interesting programs have been offered through our volunteer groups. We are looking for volunteers to join us in our efforts. We need more “friends” to help us continue to offer our current programs and to help us come up with some fun new ideas for the library as well. We are also looking for help with ideas for new fundraising events. If you are interested in joining us as a new Friend of Ricker Memorial Library please contact us today!

We would LOVE to have you on board!
