Mineola Memorial Library

Friends of the Mineola Memorial Library

The Friends of the Mineola Memorial Library is a volunteer organization under the Mineola Memorial Library 501 (C) (3) acting to engender public awareness and support of the library to enhance its service to the community. The primary purpose of this organization is to serve as a support group of volunteers for the library and to raise funds for special library needs. Our membership works with library staff to define their volunteer, special program, and financial needs. We fund library programs and activities that may exceed the library budget.


The Friends meet monthly, and guest speakers are provided for the community on a variety of topics.

We could use more friends! As a Friend you not only support the Mineola Memorial Library with your time and money, you become a part of our team.

Dues: Individual $10, Family $15 (which includes immediate family living with you). Membership is based on the calendar year with dues to be paid in January.
