Why are the Friends of the Macon County Public Library important?

Because full day, 6 day per week library service staffed by librarians is vital for creating young readers and helping students succeed in school.

Because well stocked libraries help stimulate the imagination of those who want to enhance their leisure time and satisfy the curiosity of lifelong learners.

Because our libraries are comfortable places to meet, learn, and connect to the online world.

Because the library operating budget doesn’t cover all the needs of the community.

Books On Tap Raises $4,200 for the Library!

Thank you all... from the Friends of the Macon County Public Library for your support of our recent fundraiser, "Books on Tap" at the Lazy Hiker Brewing Company. Our board members and library staff worked hard to make this a successful event. They were our catering experts, ticket sales team, and publicity staff. Thanks to those who purchased tickets, gave donations, and participated in the 50/50 drawing (including the lovely lady who donated her winnings back to the Library).

Thank you to Lazy Hiker for giving us the extra room when it became evident that there would be a full house. I believe that everyone there had a great time; meeting new people; seeing friends and neighbors, and just having fun. Every one of you helped in raising approximately $4,200, (wow!) which supports an important community asset that serves so many of us. Thanks so much for your support of your local library. Maybe we will see you next year?
