Friends of the Library
The Friends of the Library was originally organized as a group of citizens working for the capital campaign building fund for the present day library. It was the vision of Mary Ann Erickson. When the campaign was finished, Mary Ann wanted Friends of the Library to continue as a support group for the library. One of the money making activities sponsored is the Spring Gala in which authors are the featured speakers. These spring galas have been used to raise money for remodeling, additional updated technology, and some smaller immediate needs of the library such as the redecoration of the children’s area. The present board of the Friends of the Library is made up of person’s interested in the continued growth of the Grantsburg library and new members are always welcome.
