Friends of the Adel Public Library Foundation

The Friends of the Adel Public Library Foundation is a 501c charitable organization dedicated to the support and promotion of the library.

The Friends Foundation was formed in 2014 by the merger of the Adel Public Library Foundation and the Friends of the Adel Public Library.

Friends work to support various library activities, programs, and projects through fund raising and volunteer support.

Help support us by using our Amazon Smile when you shop Amazon, or consider a tax-deductible gift to the Friends. You can also donate like-new books or items for our fund-raising sales.

Each year the Foundation holds many activities, including our popular Book Sale each August and Bake Sale each October, to help the library take advantage of resources beyond our budget.

In addition to fund raising, Friends also serve as library volunteers, provide home bound outreach, and work at special events. Any level of participation is welcome, from a few hours each month, to once or twice a year at special events.
