Friends of the Library
Meetings are the first Thursday of each month at 10:30 am in the Library Meeting Room
(790 N. 10th East)
Yearly membership dues (which help with the fund raising) are $10 for individuals, $20 for a family, $25 for business and $50 for patron. Membership entitles you to a discount at the book sales and the opportunity to help move, unpack, and sort lots of books to set up the sales.
The Friends of the Mountain Home Public Library are a group of volunteers founded in 2008, with the mission “to sponsor activities, events and fund raising that enhance the Mountain Home Public Library and promote the Library to the community of Mountain Home”. Since that date, the Friends of the Library have raised over $15,000 to fulfill that mission. The Friends raise money through book sales of the used books and films donated to the Mountain Home Library. We have sponsored unique events such as the Benjamin Franklin 300th Anniversary Exhibition, Colonial Days and Glass Armonica concert. We sponsor the yearly American Girl Tea Party and the Dangerous Day for Boys. We buy books and equipment for the Library that are outside their regular budget, and we help with the various reading programs. Our funding comesfrom our three to four yearly book sales in the Library multi-purpose room, and the Friends Book Sale shelves at the Library’sfront desk. We sell hardbacks for $1, paperbacks for 50 cents and children’s books for 25 cents.
