“I believe a library is a very important part of any community. It’s probably the only place in town that’s absolutely open to everybody.”
— Phyllis Patton, former president of the Friends of the Carson City Library
Since its formation, Friends has provided a tremendous level of support to your community library.
Thanks to the founding Friends’ substantial support, in the form of time and talent, the Carson City Library opened its doors in June 1966. In no way did that event mark the end of the Friends’ support of our community’s core services.
Joining Friends gives you the opportunity to make a direct contribution to maintaining and expanding our library; as a valuable community asset, it has always provided education, enjoyment and enlightenment for current and future Carson City generations.
