The Mammoth Lakes Friends of the Library is a non-profit 501 (c)(3) organization established to raise funds to support our community library. We are a very active group of dedicated volunteers. We are young and old, men and women, full-time residents, second homeowners, students, professionals, and retirees, all with a common goal to support our library.
