The Friends of La Porte Library Are the Greatest

We have had another stellar summer filled with crafts and programs for the children of La Porte and the surrounding area due to the generosity of our Friends organization. A dedicated group comes every week to sort and fill the shelves in the book sale room with the book donations from the community. Other Friends serve on the board and handle the many requests we have for them. Their support is invaluable.

If you would like to join the Friends of La Porte Library, there are many levels of involvement available.
