The Friends of the Veterans Memorial Library is an active group who believe in the importance of the library for the people of the Mount Pleasant area. Membership in the Friends means you appreciate the vital services which the library provides to the community. Join with us to strengthen our library, and therefore, our community.


Our Purpose

  • Strengthen the association of people who understand the value of our library.
  • Encourage community use of our library facilities and its many informational services.
  • Improve public awareness and understanding of the library.
  • Assist the library with its specific needs.
  • Promote gifts to the library.


Projects of the Friends

  • Purchase of special equipment for the library such as audio visual equipment, display racks, storage units and folding tables.
  • Art work displayed in the library.
  • Acquistion of library materials.
  • Contributions of special items for the children's department.
  • Sponsorship of performances and activities such as authors, musicians, storytellers and actors.
  • An annual fall book sale and a small selection of books for sale year round which makes many of the foregoing possible.


Friends of Veterans Memorial Library Endowment Fund

This is a permanently endowed fund providing money allowing the Friends of VML to make additional contributions to Veterans Memorial Library beyond the annual operating budget.

In August 2016, the Friends of VML received a grant from this fund for $2,238.19 which was used to provide Hoopla digital media content for library patrons.

Contributions to the Friends of Veterans Memorial Library Fund at the Mount Pleasant Area Community Foundation will increase funding for grants to support the Veterans Memorial Library!
