About Us Friends of the Library
Friends of the Library

Since 1981, the Friends of the Allen County Public Library have made significant contributions to the steady growth of the library and its services to the community. Friends sponsor used book sales, library tours, literary programs and major author visits.

The Friends of the Allen County Public Library, a non-profit, membership organization, have a common concern for the library's expansion and participation in community life. We have a conviction that good library service is important to everyone.
