Friends' History

In the year 2000, the Newaygo Carnegie Library (and its Croton Branch) was the only library in Newaygo County that did not have a Friends of the Library organization supporting its efforts. Over the course of three months early that year, a committed group of volunteers, with the help of the Friends organization from White Cloud, founded the Newaygo Carnegie and Croton Friends of the Library. Though over the years the groupís name has changed (itís now known as the Friends of the Newaygo Area District Library (NADL)) and different members have served as officers, there has never been a change in the organizationís commitment to supporting the Library. Through activity and advocacy within the community and through fund-raising programs, the Friends have increased the presence of and the resources for NADL.

The Friends have participated in such community events as the Newaygo Arts and Crafts Show, the Business Expo, the Labor Day Parade, and the Christmas Walk at which they give out refreshments while conducting a much anticipated bake-sale.

The majority of the funds raised by the Friends comes from the sale of donated items at our Bookstore. Begun many years ago in a small room in the basement of the Library, the Bookstore is now located in the former community room in the Newaygo City Hall. Countless volunteer hours are spent organizing the wide variety of books and materials given to the Friends by generous supporters of the Library. Open one or two days a week during the warm months, the Bookstore has enabled the Friends to enhance the Library and its programs in a number of significant ways by providing funds for:

Books and Bookcases

Library Remodeling

Decorative Rugs

Computer Chairs

Digital camera

Reading Programs

Guest Speakers

Today, members of the Friends continue to give generously of their time and talents to make the Newaygo Area District Library a better library for all.
