Welcome to the Friends of the Mountain View Library
Do you love the library? So do we.
The Friends of the Mountain View Library is a non-profit organization that raises money to make our library an ever-better place to be. Our goals are to:
- Help keep the community and the library connected
- Communicate the benefits and needs of the library
- Aid in the funding of high-quality library resources and services
The Friends have raised over $1 million since 1975 to achieve these goals through Lobby Shop sales, Used Book sales, and donations.
Funds raised by the Friends are used to support:
- Children's Summer Reading Program
- Teen Programs
- Mobile Library Services
- Furniture and Shelving
- Parent Education Programs
- The Bestseller Collections of New Books, DVDs, and More!
Kids' Book Club
Learn how parents, children, classmates, grandparents or friends can have fun when they get together to read and share a common book with the Friends' Book Club program.
