Several board members are leaving this year.  If you are interested in serving, please email us at friendsofthekcpl@gmail.com.

Thanks to all who renewed there membership last month. We have 360 regular members and 28 lifetime members!

Our Book Sale members night brought in 88 members and 13 new ones.  We are now up to 342 regular members and 26 lifetime members.  Since so many members contribute $50 we have come up with a new bright yellow book bag.

Thanks for all your support!


Membership in the Friends allows you access to our book sale preview nights, the annual meeting and cocktail party, speakers and special events and—most importantly—a chance to help out with our community library.    Membership dues remain $10 for an individual and $20 for a family. A $50 contribution entitles you to family membership and a free library book bag.  A $100 or more contribution includes a Friends of KCPL license plate cover.  You can pick up membership forms at the library, by emailing a request with address to FriendsKCPL@gmail.com  or completing our form below.  Be sure to join up before the book sale so you can take advantage of membership night!
