The Friends of MCDL are making things happen at Medina County District Libraries. The Summer Reading Celebration, which provides a reading incentive game and tons of great programs for families every summer is fully funded by the Friends - to the tune of $20,000 annually!
Enjoy seeing authors at Writers Live or any of our libraries? That's funded by the Friends too. The Library's Signature Events like Pet Palooza at Brunswick and the Bee Festival in Medina are, you guessed it, funded by the Friends.
How do we do it? We have a huge bookstore in the basement of the Medina library with library discards - that are still in great shape and donated books from the community. We also have book sales monthly at the Medina, Brunswick and Buckeye Libraries, twice at year at Highland and ongoing at Lodi and Seville. You'll find great reads and deals at all of these sales!
Want to help? Become a member for just $5 for an individual and come to the Friends only preview sales we host quarterly at Medina Library. Donate your old books. Moving or kids going off to college? Bring the books you no longer have room for to us, we give them a second life!
Volunteer at a sale, email us and we'll get you hooked up with the Friends group from your home library. It's rewarding and fun!
