Become a Friend of Eckels Memorial Library

We invite you to join us in supporting the Eckels Memorial Library by becoming a Friend. The purpose of the Friends of Eckels Memorial Library is to promote the use of the library and develop supplemental funding. The most important way to show your support is to become a member of the Friends of Eckels Memorial Library. There are several levels of membership. (Please review the membership form to see which level fits you best.)
The library supports the Riverside community by offering valuable resources, including: books and magazines, computer and online access including free WiFi, DVDs and VHS, a large selection of children’s books and Story Hour, and we also have an impressive genealogical center. In return, the library needs the support of Friends to continue offering its services.
Becoming a Friend is simple! All you have to do is fill out the membership form and return it to the library. A Friend is someone who cares about the future of the library. Help us ensure that the Eckels Memorial Library continues to thrive in the Riverside Community!
