The New Richmond Friends of the Library Mission:
To encourage closer relationships between the New Richmond community and the library
To promote use of the library by patrons with a variety of interests
To establish a volunteer program to assist the library in meeting the needs of the community
Friends of the Library thanks all our loyal members - individuals, families, small businesses and corporate sponsors - for your continued support. Your membership fees and donations were 51% of our revenue in 2018. In 2018 Friends donated $4,407 to the library. That amount enabled Friends to support all of the library staff's requests for funding in 2018. Some of the things that were funded were Lucky Day collection, news on microfilm, books for summer reading prizes, and Mark Moran appraisals.
Coffee Mugs Available
Coffee mugs decorated with the Friends of the Library logo can now be purchased at the Library. Cost of the mugs is $15 and they are available in four colors: Root Beer, Honeycomb, Stormy Blue and Pistachio.
Friends of the Library mugs are handcrafted by master potters at Sunset Hill Stoneware in Neenah, WI, a family-owned business. The Friends of the Library logo artwork is transformed into a clay medallion, then engraved with glaze. The mugs are designed to keep cold beverages chilled and hot liquids warm. They are microwave, oven and dishwasher safe. Because the mugs are handmade, there will be minor variations in
size, color and glaze consistency.
