The Friends of the Mason City Public Library

The Friends of the Library is a group who supports and promotes the Mason City Public Library.  The Friends raise funds to be used by the Library for activities not ordinarily covered under the library's operating budget.  The Friends currently have nearly 200 members.  We contribute to the summer reading program for children, young adults, adult programs, and to the Writers' Workshop. 

 

We look forward to serving with you.  In 2010-11, the Friends donated :

 

  • $2500 to help support Children, Young Adult, and Adult Programs
  • Purchased an additional four Wii programs
  • Cheese and Wine Reception with the Friends Annual Meeting
  • Annual fund-raising Geranium Sale
  • Paid for the glass information case in the mall by splitting the cost with the Library Foundation
  • Helped support the Libraries contribution to the summer movies in East Park
  • Supported the Old Time Cartoon show
