Friends of the Library

Friends of the Kaukauna Public Library

Friends are advocates for libraries.  Friends’ membership fees, donations and fundraising efforts provide grants to the Library for programs, materials, technology, services and special projects.  Friends’ volunteerism allows Library staff to perform their duties with more attention.

What do Friends do?

Friends of the Library can hold office in the organization, assist & run book sales, fundraise, and volunteer.  As a volunteer, Friends would have the opportunity to adopt a shelf, help shelve, volunteer on local history projects, help with landscaping and assist with programming. 

To volunteer, please fill out this form

Friends meetings are held the second Thursday of the month at 6:30p in the Board Room in February, May, August & November.
