Friends Of Alexandrian Public Library

115 West Fifth Street
Mount Vernon, IN 47620

The Friends of the Alexandrian Public Library was initially formed in 1977 to increase library volunteerism, expand library services, and help to construct a new library building. However, it was not until September 26th, 1988, that it was incorporated in the state of Indiana as a nonprofit corporation.

The Purpose of the Friends is to:

     maintain an association of persons interested in libraries;
     focus public attention of the library;
     stimulate the use of the library's resources and services;
     receive and encourage gifts, endowments, and bequests to the library;
     support and cooperate with the library in developing library services and facilities for the community;
     lend legislative support where needed;
     support the freedom to read and view as expressed in the Library Bill of Rights
