Who We Are
The mission of the Friends of the Monroe Library is to support and promote public awareness of library services, the facility, and the library staff in positive ways.
Our goal is to inspire and motivate our community to recognize and use the library system to promote literacy, education, cultural and intellectural interaction, and for the creative exchange of ideas.
Looking to the future, we strive to complement Sno-Isle Libraries in a partnership that directly enhances and enriches the local community and all of its members.
