Friends of the Mount Horeb Public Library
The Friends of the Mount Horeb Public Library (FOL) group promotes the well-being of the library. The FOL provide funds, labor, and in-kind assistance to enrich and enhance library services to the community. Proceeds from Friends fundraisers have been used to purchase computers, furniture, books, videos, and to support programming. Volunteers help at fundraisers, fold and label the library's newsletters, serve on committees, or one of many other volunteer opportunities.
Monthly meetings are held the second Thursday of each month at 7 pm.

Participating bakers deliver the finished pies on Friday, and the booth is set up the next day for the Art Fair where the pies are sold - usually within several hours - to eager Art Fair attendees.
Walking Books is a service that provides public library materials to residents of Mount Horeb who find it difficult or impossible to get to the library. This service began in 2003. It successfully makes available books and more to homebound residents.
Volunteers with Friends of the Library are matched with individuals who wish to borrow books, CDs, DVDs, and magazines from the library. The volunteer checks out the items, takes them to the individual's home and returns them when due.
Walking Books is a wonderful way for homebound residents to stay connected with the library. Walking Books also fosters friendships between the library customer and volunteer.
To participate in the Walking Books Program contact Library Director Jessica Williams at or (608) 437-5021 ext. 108
