Friends of the Library

Our group supports the programs and collection of International Falls Public Library in many ways. We sponsor special events for children, adults, seniors, and families. We raise funds to purchase equipment and materials outside the normal library budget. The Friends also work to enhance and increase awareness of library programs and services.
