The Friends of the Lewistown Public Library
The Friends of the Lewistown Public Library are a group of dedicated supporters helping the Lewistown Public Library be the very best that it can be. Our Library is funded by the City and Fergus county; however the budget is a barebones budget without room for unexpected repairs or expenses. Our Friends try to help out when an unexpected or unbudgeted need occurs. For example, in 2018 the original historic doors to the original library building were in great disrepair and there wasn’t a budget item to cover the expense of restoring these historic doors. The Friends paid to have the doors restored. The bathroom in the upstairs meeting room wasn’t handicapped accessible, the flooring needed replacing but again no money in the budget so the Friends remodeled and ensured the bathroom met the standards. Landscaping around the Library was dying (except for the weeds) so the Friends paid to have the dead plants and bushes removed and new hardscape installed as well as maintenance plants and grasses planted. Where ever there is a need not covered by the budget, the Friends try to meet that need as requested by the Library Director.
