The Library Friends of Payson, Inc

MISSION:  The Library Friends of Payson, Inc., is a private, nonprofit organization whose mission is to provide financial and community support to the Payson Public Library. We believe that public libraries comprise an integral aspect of community identity and development, and we support endeavors that encourage literacy and free inquiry within the individual, the family, and society.

HISTORY:  Like many of Rim Country's finest service organizations, "The Library Friends" were established as a 'grassroots' effort to support the growing Payson Public Library.

We have evolved from just providing books -- to purchasing computers and other equipment & funding Public Library programs that would not otherwise be covered in its Town and County budget.


SERVICES WE PROVIDE: We offer a Free Library Services for Homebound Individuals - through our "Library Buddy Program." We also purchase books and supplies for Payson Public Library.

PROJECTS WE SPONSOR:  We are an Annual Rim Country Regional Chamber of Commerce Business  Showcase participant.

We maintain the LFOP bookstore (a used bookstore in the Payson Public Library). Staffing is done entirely by volunteers.

 

On Monday, August 17th, the Library Friends of Payson are pleased to have Susan Campbell, Emergency Preparedness Coordinator at Payson Unified School District, talk about Emergency Response Planning and answer questions about what the district and your schools are doing to prepare for critical incidents that can happen any time, any place, to anyone. Every day 55 million children go to school and return home safely. Rarely, however, that safety is violated by bad weather, chemical spills, incidents in surrounding neighborhoods and highly-publicized school shootings. Susan Campbell will share information on what schools, including Payson schools, are doing to keep students, staff, volunteers and visitors safe.

The Library Friends of Payson presentation for the community, which is held in the library meeting room, will start with a short business meeting at 10:00 a.m., and the program begins at 10:30 a.m. The public is invited to both the business meeting and the free one hour program. Light refreshments will be served. If you have any questions, please call the library at 928-474-9260.
