Friends of the Library

Book Sale setup

Friends of the Library is a nonprofit, charitable group that supports the library through fundraising activities, volunteerism, and public awareness campaigns. Library Friends have the opportunity to have a greater voice in the programs, collections, and services the library provides.

Friends of the Library Book Sale

The Friends of the Library Book Sale is an ongoing sale located at the North entrance of the library. Stop by during the library's regular hours to browse the selection of gently used books and other media.

Look out for sales! Throughout the year there will be bag sales, 2-for-1 sales, and other great discounts. Ask at the circulation desk if you're not sure which sale might be in effect.

Friends of the Library T-Shirts

T-shirts from the Friends of the Dorothy Bramlage Public Library are available for purchase. Sizes range from Small (Shown in the picture) to Extra Large and are priced at $20 each.

Proceeds go towards programs and services at the library.

Computers & Printing

Adult sit down computers

Ten one-hour sit down computers and two 15-minute stand-up computers are available for adult patrons. No library card is required, and sign up is at the reference desk.

Some computers offer CAC/Smart Card readers, and all computers have internet access and printing capabilities unless otherwise specified.

Printing is ten cents ($0.10) per page. Patrons are responsible for every page that prints, so it is highly recommended to ask a member of the reference staff for help when printing.

Wireless internet is also available for public use. The wireless password of the day is displayed in the library. Wirless printing is not available.
