Friends and Fundraising

Spring Gala and Auction

The Friends of the Morris Public Library is a support organization which raises funds throughout the year to help with funding of Library books, programs, and special events.  The largest Fundraising effort is the Annual "Art Around the Box" event that is sponsored by both the Friends of the Morris Library and the Library Board.

The Morris Public Library is a tax deductible charity and we appreciate your support to help us serve you better.  If you can't think of what you need or want for the holidays, why not ask your family and friends to give a donation to the Morris Public Library in your name. Fundraising events are held throughout the year, check back soon for current fundraisers.
