Friends of the Library

Friends of Papillion's Sump Memorial Library invite you to become a member of a growing non-profit volunteer citizen's group. We are community-minded individuals who have a special interest in supporting our public library. We meet quarterly in the evenings to discuss current and upcoming happenings in the library. 

Our dues and all fundraising money pay for equipment and materials not covered by the library budget. We have assisted with the purchase of furniture, program supplies, presenter fees, technology equipment, and other items that help improve the level of service the library offers our community. We work with the Library Staff, Library Advisory Board, and the Library Foundation to promote the library as a vital part of the spirit of our community. If you believe in the importance of reading, gaining information through print and technology, community activities, and libraries, we hope you will join us.
