Friends of the Library
Friends of the Library are groups of citizens who join together to support and promote public libraries. They understand the importance of library service to the community and work in a variety of ways to help the library become more effective. Friends of the Tonganoxie Library have been in existence since the late 1880's. At that time a group of community ladies started with a small collection of books for lending. This grew into a larger library that was once housed in our current city hall building. As the library grew a librarian was hired and a Friends group continued.
