The Friends of the Independence Public Library is a non-profit group formed to support the Independence Public Library. Their mission is to help the library fulfill its role in the community by fund-raising, promotion and support. All money raised provides funding and assistance for projects and programs at the library that would not otherwise be possible. The Friends of the Library have an ongoing book sale at the Independence Visitor's Center (311 S. Monmouth Street). You can buy books at any time that the center is open -- usually Monday through Friday from 10am to 2pm.
The Friends of the Independence Public Library have gathered memories of the Columbus Day Storm from people throughout the northwest. To order a copy of "Storm Stories" print the order form listed below.
