Friends of the EPL

Dear Friends,

Local businesses and organizations are welcome to join the Friends of the Estherville Public Library.  Your membership supports the programs and services provided to the community through the library, and enables the organization to offer much more than our operating budget would allow.  Our programs for all ages bring an average of nearly 300 people per month through our doors, and as always are free and open to everyone.

There are two ways to join.  You may follow this link to the Friends page of our website where you can select a membership level on the left side of the page and pay online:

Or, you may print out the attached letter and mail it in or drop it off (we have a 24-hour drop box just south of our main entrance, or stop in anytime we are open). 

On behalf of the Friends of the Library Board, I’d like to thank you for your consideration,

Tena Hanson, Director

Staff Representative, Friends of the EPL Board
