FRIENDS OF THE LIBRARY
For over two decades, the Friends of the Enterprise Public Library has provided financial and volunteer support to the Enterprise Public Library. By generating funds for library support and improvement, focusing public attention on library services, facilities, and needs, and maintaining an association of people interested in books and libraries, the Friends are a vital component to the Enterprise Public Library.
For the past 20 years, the Friends of the Enterprise Public Library have raised over $100,000 for the Enterprise Public Library that has been used to purchase everything from library software to bookmarks to funding the annual Summer Reading Program.
Source of Funds
The Friends of the Enterprise Public Library primarily raises funds from three sources, used book sales throughout the year, Friends memberships, and Daily Deals book sale section located on the 2nd floor of the library.
Used Book Sales
The Friends sponsor two large book sales per year (April and October) and several small mini-sales throughout the year. Used materials are collected by the Friends from private donations and weeded items from the Enterprise Public Library's collection.
Friends' memberships may be purchased in-person at the Enterprise Public Library or by mailing a completed application and membership fee. Members of the Friends of the Enterprise Public Library organization are eligible to attend the "Friends Only Pre-Sale" held Thursday evenings during the semi-annual sales. New memberships are accepted prior to the sale and at the door.
Business or Organization $30/year

Updated weekly, the Daily Deals area features a wide selection of fiction and nonfiction books for all ages as well as DVDs, music CDs and audiobooks. The Daily Deals are can be assessed during library hours. All sales benefit the Enterprise Public Library.
