Mission Statement

Our mission is to: - Cooperate with the library in expanding services to the community - Promote the development of library programs - Create and foster an appreciation of library services - Support and strengthen the library through monetary donations

Description

The mission of the NFBCL has always revolved around community connections and fundraising support for the Library. Over the past several years, the Friends have donated $50,000 to the library each year as a result of store sales, online sales, and semiannual large book sales. The NFBCL is served by a volunteer Board of Directors some of which are also volunteers at our store The Book Corner.

Sales of community-donated books, movies and music CDs continue to be the Friends’ primary source of revenue. In 2013, the Friends began selling books and media online through Amazon. Sales grew quickly, and have the added benefit of reaching buyers for textbooks, specialty nonfiction and collectible books, which often do not sell at the bookstore. Library sales provide another outlet and reach a wide audience. Sales of community-donated books, movies and music CDs continue to be the Friends’ primary source of revenue.
