Friends of the Library

The Friends of the Maricopa Public Library is a non-profit organization dedicated to support and enhance our library. They raise funds to support literacy programs and other library activities. Gently used books are available for purchase from the Friends bookshelf at the library. They also host semi-annual book sales in the spring and fall.

Their Annual Membership meeting is held on the second Monday in June at 5:30 p.m. and all members are encouraged to attend to vote on board elections.
