The only entrance requirement is interest.”

Welcome to our corner. The Friends of Talent Library are volunteers dedicated to the support, assistance, and promotion of our local library.
The Talent Friends give extensive financial support to the Summer Reading and Storytime programs, provide volunteers to aid the library staff, maintain the glass display cases, sponsor free programs and Friday movies throughout the year, and fund acquisition of additional books, magazines, and DVDs for our Talent Library.
Our successful Capital Campaign raised a third of million dollars, increasing the patron and book space in the new Talent Branch Library by over 1400 square feet.
Current priorities are to maintain open hours at the Talent Library – and to support and expand the programs, activities, and collection available at the Talent Library.
The Annual Members Meeting is Thursday, April 24, 2014 at the Talent Library, 6:30pm. This is in lieu of an April Board Meeting.
Board Meetings are held at the Talent Library on the fourth Friday of the month at 1:30 pm – unless otherwise posted here. Note: there will be no regular Board Meeting in June & July 2014.
Our meetings are open to all. Bring your ideas and energy. We guarantee you a warm reception.
There's never been a better time to join and show our community's support for our new Talent Library! Membership Application.
