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. 

We are also looking for ways to attract younger members to the Friends, including ways to engage with volunteers at activities beside the book sales, this discussion will continue.   Ideas are welcome!!!
