Dedicated to Supporting Literacy

Our Mission

Our mission is to maintain an association interested in books, libraries, and literacy and to facilitate donations of books and other materials; and to encourage donations and bequests to the Friends of The Stow- Munroe Falls Public Library endowment fund.
