The Library Board of Trustees embarked on an update to their MOU with the Friends of the Library groups several years ago, due to a variety of factors. An updated MOU is intended to expand upon information helpful to the Friends groups as they comply with legal requirements of non-profits, as well as highlighting County standards for working with non-profits, and documenting what the Library and the Trustees provide to the Friends groups.
