Foundation of Friends in Action
Vision: To ensure that the Indian Valley Library is a dynamic force for community learning.
Mission: Strengthen the financial resources of the Indian Valley Public Library to guarantee sustainability.
The Foundation of Friends was established in 2019 and has been offering financial support to the Indian Valley Public Library ever since. Below are the special projects the FOF has funded as of 2022. The current project is the renovation of the Community Room. You may join and be a part of the mission here.
The members of the Beginner's Chess Club are serious about improving their
skills. They recently found themselves in need of some chess clocks and
requested some assistance with funding. The Foundation of Friends was happy
to answer the call.
Pictures of kids using the chess clocks would go here.
IVPL Video Series
The library offers an abundance of things to do - both in- person and online - and wanted to find a way to showcase what it provides to the community. When it was decided that video would be the best medium to do that, the Foundation of Friends was quick to offer it's support and made it their special project for 2022.
Longtime volunteer Gene Mattes discusses why he
chooses to get involved. He has been a volunteer for
over 20 years. Gene was inspired by wife Carol; who
volunteered here prior to his time he did.
Mr. Robbie shows off just a fraction of what kids can do here at the library; as well as his musical skills. He, Ms. Angela, and Ms. Nicole provide a wealth of fun and educational activities for local youth.
