The Friends of the Milanof-Schock Library is a group of enthusiastic volunteers who love the library and share a passion for its growth and development.
Its purpose is…
- To maintain an association of persons interested in the growth and development of libraries,
- To focus attention on library services, facilities and needs, and
- To stimulate contributions through projects and special events.
Officers are elected in November, and the fiscal year operates from January to December.
All proceeds of any kind earned from any fund raiser go directly to the Library for programs, resources, building maintenance…anything the Library may need to provide services and materials for its community!
Meetings are held the 2nd Monday of the month at 6 p.m. at the library (excluding July and December). Yearly dues are $5 and payable when you join.
To volunteer to sort books for the book sale, please call Lora Jones at 492-9806.

Used Book Sale
This 2023 Used Book Sale will be held at Donegal High School June 22-24.
HISTORY OF THE FRIENDS GROUP
The Friends of the Milanof-Schock Library was organized in August of 1999. Prior to that date, the group functioned as a Book Sale Committee for three years. Upon formation of the group, officers were elected and regular meeting times were established. They are a non-profit organization and a member of PCBL (Pennsylvania Citizens for Better Libraries).
The Used Book Sale remains to be their biggest fund raiser. The Used Book Store was originally opened as a portable cart in March, 2000 and expanded to a full room at the Library in March 2001.
There are many ways to be active in the Friends Group. Your energy and ideas are encouraged and appreciated! We have a great community library, and with your help the Friends can make it even better!
