Friends of the Library
We work in conjunction with the Library Board and staff to advance and encourage appreciation, understanding, enjoyment and use of our library.
How we serve:
We use dues from memberships and money generated from book sales and other fundraising activities to fulfill special needs of the library that fall outside the budget received from the City of Goddard. Our volunteers also help with library programs and activities.
We work to encourage literacy and equitable access to information for all who live, work, or visit our community.
Sponsored the 2023 Kansas Reads to Preschoolers program by providing 500 copies of to be distributed to children throughout the Goddard area
New and gently used children’s books provided to Clark Davidson elementary school
Helped a teacher at Church of the Holy Spirit school to create a classroom library
Our memberships align with the calendar year. And with three levels to choose from, we offer an option for everyone!

Our household memberships extend the benefits of individual membership to every library cardholder residing at your address.
If online payments are not your preference, you may complete one of our membership forms and mail it to us along with your payment, or you may drop it off in person at the library during one of your visits.
We are always looking for additional members interested in serving on the Friends Board or our committees. Would you like to learn more? Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or leave a message for us at the library.
