Library meeting room
The Friends of Horicon Library is a 501(C)3 non-profit organization, formed in 1987, committed to supporting library activities, encouraging reading, and promoting culture in the community. The Friends raise funds to sponsor the Summer Library Program, Children’s and Teen programming, and the extremely popular Milwaukee County Zoo Pass.
Fundraisers include the year-round book sale, bake and craft sales, Christmas Cookie Walk, and food sales at the Music at the Market series and, and ongoing candy bar sales.
With grants and donations from local businesses, the Friends have been able to provide financial support to the library for specific purchases such as the fountain in front of City Hall and children’s room furnishings. Over the years, the Friends have also focused spending to meet shortfalls in collections.
Membership is open to the public and joining is easy. Pick up a Friends brochure at the library, complete the brief membership form with your name, address and phone number and return it with your $5 single dues or $10 family dues. Members may attend meetings, but may also contribute in other ways such as helping at fundraisers, providing program refreshments, or simply by being a member.
