Friends of the Library

The Friends of the South Milwaukee Library is an integral organization that supports the library through fundraising and advocacy.

One easy way to support the Friends and our local library is to donate by shopping on after selecting the Friends of the South Milwaukee Library as your charity of choice. Your donations support library programming for our community to enjoy.

Another way to support the Friends and the library is by becoming a member of the Friends of the South Milwaukee Library. As a member, you’ll get special member invitations and discounts at book sales and library events. Plus, your support will go towards your local library’s children’s and adult programs and much more. If you’d like to become a Friend, you can print off a membership form, complete it and return it with your fee to the library.

Thank you to everyone who stopped by Cousins Subs on Monday, July 27th and thank you to Cousins for their support! Over the course of three hours, nearly $150 was raised for the Friends.
