Friends of Kreutz Creek Library

The Friends of Kreutz Creek Valley Library are a group of civic-minded individuals who recognize that a good library is central to a good community.  Through committee work, the Friends raise funds, help promote library awareness and help to improve and expand library service by working with the librarian.  The Friends group is organized apart from the library and has its own by-laws, officers, and organization.

Over the years, the Friends have helped the library in a variety of ways. Some examples of the Friends’ accomplishments include driving community outreach and support, raising funds to support a percentage of the library’s yearly finances, volunteering time to the library, as well as many other community-driven efforts.
