Message from the Library Director, Sherri Brickley’s (11/2022)

“How exciting! Friends of the Brown Public Library is going into its 35th year.

The Friends have helped out the library in so many times of need, whether it be financially or by volunteering their time. We appreciate all they’ve done for us and our patrons over the years.

Friends of the Brown Public Library are an advocate for our library. They are our best ambassadors because they love their library and see it as an important community resource.

While I hope you join our great Friends group, I would also like to take a moment and thank our Friends group and their current and past members. They’ve always been here for us in times of need and we appreciate their support of Brown Public Library.

Please stop by the library and pick up our latest newsletter and consider completing the application to be a Friend.”
