Friends of the Cape Girardeau Public Library Foundation
The mission of the Friends of the Cape Girardeau Foundation is to assist the Cape Girardeau Public Library by promoting its mission of information gathering experiences through social interaction, programming, technology, and the written word. The Friends will develop and encourage community involvement through fundraising, outreach, and volunteer services.
Friends membership entitles you to a private showing during the first hour of the Annual Book Sales, advance notice and reservations for special library events and a quarterly newsletter. Each level also includes "Friends Bucks" which may be used at book sales and to purchase a Friends book bag. Also beginning at the $50 level a book will be added to the library's collection. A one-inch "Book of Distinction" spine will be added to the donor bookcase for each member who donates $500 or more. If you are interested in membership, you may call the Cape Girardeau Public Library for more information (573-334-5279) or copy off the form provided and return it to the library. Donations to the Friends are tax deductible.

They sponsor activities which focus positive public attention on the library; encourage the use of the library's materials and services; encourage gifts, endowments, and bequests to the library; and lend support developing library services and facilities for the community
