The purposes of the Friends of the Greene Public Library are:

  • To build a greater realization of the importance of the library to the continued development of our community
  • To raise funds to be used by the library for activities and purchases not covered by the library's operating budget.
  • To provide volunteer support throughout the year as needed.



Meetings are held the 1st Wednesday of every month at 4:00pm in the meeting room of the Greene Public Library.
