 The friends have authorized the Library's Friends funding request for 2022, it was for $6,950.00 and while it is a good amount we are hoping the library can do more programming this year and we will see more participants utilizing Library programs this Summer.  The breakdown this year is $4,550 for youth and $2,400 for adult.  The money will support fees, supplies and refreshesments for performers and programs as selected by the Library. Additionally we funded a second purchase of "We Love the Ellsworth Public Library" signs you are hopefully seeing out in town.



FRIEND'S LOGO TOTES FOR SALE The new supply of BLUE book totes on order have arrived, please check them out, and if you like them please purchase one for yourself and remember they do make wonderful gifts.  Totes are $12 and are for sale at the Circulation desk during normal Library hours, and at the book sales.


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.


Volunteer:   Thank You to all who have participated in our past events because through your participation we raise funding for the many programs not funded by the city.  If you can volunteer please leave a name and phone number at the circulation desk or get it touch with Melanie Zador.



Program Schedule: The Library's current status is kept updated on their Web-site and Facebook page.  Many on-line activities are listed and available on the web-site as well.  Please Keep Well!!
