Welcome Friends!

The Friends of the Ellsworth Public Library are community members working on behalf of the library to raise funds and increase community involvement in the library.



Volunteers always have a splendid time at the book sale. Thank You to all who participated in these events because through your participation we raise funding for the many programs not funded by the city.  If you can volunteer but were not called please leave a name and phone number at the circulation desk or get it touch with Melanie Zador.

The Fall programming is on-going, the schedule is included in our newsletter, and on the Librarys website.    Please remember this quality programming is only available and free because your donations make it happen.  In case of inclement weather Library closures will be posted on their Web-site and Facebook page.
