Who We Are

The Friends of the McKinleyville Library are people from all walks of life who support our library. By paying modest yearly dues, members provide the working budget which allows us to fund our activities, including the costs of fundraising for our medium and long-range goals.

What the Friends Do

We routinely pay for newspaper and magazine subscriptions. The Friends also provide funding for children’s programming and recently purchased a changing table for the restroom. In 2010 an addition to the library was built after more than a decade of fundraising and grant writing by FOML. The new room houses public computers, work spaces and WiFi throughout the library.
