About the Organization
Kearney Friends of the Library is a volunteer organization that formed in 1969 to advocate for construction of the current Library building. In the more than 35 years since that first success, the Friends organization has supported the Library and its services by:
  • Providing funding for special items and programs.
  • Providing funding for summer reading programs for youth and adults.
  • Advocating for the Library and its collection.
  • Appreciating the staff.
  • Assisting in many other large and small projects in order to make our Library better for all Kearney citizens.

Book Sales
Friends of the Library holds a book sale of donated and discarded books each fall, and offers a selection of those books for sale near the entrance of the Library during the school months.
