The Friends of the Ruth Culver Community Library is a vibrant non-profit organization dedicated to enriching the library and its services to the community.
The purpose of the Friends is to:
- Promote and improve library services, materials and facilities for the Prairie du Sac community
- Stimulate gifts and bequests to the library
- Provide volunteer support in strengthening the library’s program
- Encourage the broadest possible use of its facilities, materials and services.
Our current annual fundraising events include a golf outing, two book sales and a trivia contest. Proceeds from gifts and fundraising efforts are used to enhance the library and its services in accordance with our purpose. As an organization, we took an active role in providing financial support for the library’s building projects in both 2012 and 1997 by holding capital campaigns.
Over the past five years, we have made significant contributions to enhance the library building, collection and programs. Recent building enhancements made possible by the Friends have included an audiovisual system and microphones for the community room, tables, chairs, digital signs, end panel signs and much more! We have donated funds to expand the library’s books on CD collection and also supported the library’s Lucky Day books and movie collections. Program support included sponsorship of programs for adults and the summer reading program.
