Friends History

The Friends have been helping to build support for the library since 1957. Their labors encouraged Library growth from the basement of the original City Hall to our present facility. They have provided financial support from membership fees and volunteer support at the Friends of the Library Annual Used Book Sale. Funds raised enable the library to stretch budget dollars and improve services.

Some of the services the Friends of the Madison Heights Public Library have provided include: Youth programs, Prizes for the Summer Reading Programs, Computers for Internet access, A disc repair machine to help prolong the life of our book-on-CD and DVD collections, and a HD Flat panel TV screen for displaying the City information channel.
