Join Friends of Freeman!

What is one of the best ways you can support library?  By joining the Friends of Freeman Library!  This generous and indispensable group loves the library so much that they freely give of their time to raise funds for our programs, collections, and services.  One of the  ways they do this is through the bookstore immediately to your right as soon as you walk in the front doors of the library.  They also accept other donations from the public on behalf of the library and volunteer their assistance with a variety of jobs throughout our departments.  

National Library Week

This week has been National Library Week, but based on our statistics over the last fiscal year, you might think that you, the patrons, have made every week a celebration of the library!

Did you know that from March 2011 through February 2012, Freeman Library . . . 

  • - Circulated over 1 million items
  • - Registered over 80,000 new library cards
  • - Offered 1,300 programs with almost 40,000 attendants
  • - Logged over 5 million minutes of public computer use

Those are amazing numbers!  Thank you, our patrons, for demonstrating that libraries still matter!
