Friends of the Maquoketa Public Library

Friends of the Library is a program and support organization for the Library. Friends raise funds with a continuous used book sale located in the north section of the adult library, plus other one-time events.



Friends projects benefit patrons of all ages!   Currently Friends are involved in the following:


  • Summer Reading incentives and special performances for children
  • Books for Babies outreach to new parents
  • Books for Kindergartners, a program presented in cooperation with Cardinal and Sacred Heart Schools to reach incoming kindergarten children
  • Check Out a Museum Pass—an opportunity for families to visit the Bettendorf Family Museum with no charge
