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.
