Many thanks to all who have renewed your memberships. We encourage all who have not renewed to help us again this year. We also want to thank those patrons who make separate donations. Every dollar counts, and increases what we are able to fund.

Friend’s Membership.  The Friends have had several very successful fundraisers this past year thanks to all our patrons and the Mt. Pleasant community. We have been able to fund a summer reading entertainer, a membership pass to Roger Williams Zoo, large print and audio books, non-fiction DVDs, an annual Jazz Night and a new carpet for our basement community room that is used on a regular basis.
