Friends of Jerome Public Library
The Friends of the Jerome Public Library offer many services that benefit the Library on an annual basis. They contribute funds for all the programming in the library ranging from Children’s Summer Reading to Adult book talks. Some funds go toward special book projects and programming. Many of their funds are patron generated from book donations and the Friends’ bookstore sales. The book store is located between the computer area and the adult fiction section. Among the selection are many new and gently used books that array from the newest James Patterson series to a children’s book from your childhood. Prices vary from 25 cents to $2.00.
The Friends also host a bi-annual book/bake sale to promote the library.
