Purpose of Friends
The purpose of Friends of the New Carlisle-Olive Township Public Library is to:
- maintain an association of persons interested in libraries;
- focus public attention on the library;
- stimulate the use of the library's resources and services;
- encourage gifts, endowments and memorials for the library;
- provide direct financial assistance for buying special items which would benefit the library, but cannot be funded from the normal operating budget;
- support and cooperate with the library in developing library services and facilities for the community;
- sponsor programs designed to enrich the cultural life of the community; and
- support the freedom to read as expressed in the American Library Association Bill of Rights.
Memberships and Benefits
