The Friends of Lakewood Public Library pay for nearly all of the Library’s concerts, films, lectures and publications with no source of revenue other than deep discount book sales and membership dues. Sale proceeds support the Library van which delivers books to classrooms and homebound readers. Funds also go to community outreach programs with organizations that promote childhood literacy and healthy lifestyles.
