Friends of East Lake Community Library is a non-profit, 501 (c)(3) organization that raises funds to promote and enhance the library's services and facilities while also fostering closer relationships between the library and its community. Monies raised help to support materials and services not covered by library tax funds. All are welcome at Friends meetings, which are held at 10 am the second Thursday of every month. Minutes of the meetings are available at the library on request. If you have any questions, please email
