Friends of the Johnsburg Public Library

The Friends of the Johnsburg Public Library is a non-profit organization whose goal is to raise money and provide support for the library's role as a vital source of information and enjoyment for the community.

The principal fundraising activity of the Friends is an annual used book sale, with occasional additional sales and sponsorships offered throughout the year.  Donations of your time, used books in good condition, and money are always welcome and tax deductible.  For book donations, please drop them off at the library's main desk.
The Friends meet the third Tuesday of the month at 7:00 pm in the library's meeting room. Note that meetings are not held in June, November, or December due to booksales and holidays.
