Friends of the Library
The Friends began March 7, 1995. It became 501(c)3 tax-exempt shortly after.
The Friends assist Neuschafer Community Library in meeting the public needs through volunteer work. We provide funds for projects and items not budgeted. We provide a tax-exempt avenue to accept donations from library supporters.
Membership is yearly or lifetime. All Lifetime Memberships are acknowledged on the Friends of Neuschafer Library Lifetime Member plaque. Lifetime memberships are available in one $1000 payment or five $200 consecutive yearly payments.
The friends sponsor the following library programs:
- Lunch & Learns
- Contributor to the 2021 library remodel
- 2-year Junior Library Guild subscription
- Children’s books for Read Across America event
- Summer Reading Program
- Annual basket sale fundraiser
The Bob Kemper Scholarship
The Bob Kemper Fund is administered by the Friends of the Neuschafer Community Library. It is to show support for Fremont area graduates of the Weyauwega-Fremont High School who choose to continue their education at the University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh (including Fond du Lac and Fox Cities). APPLY HERE!
Friends of the Neuschafer Community Library host a fundraiser in November. Please email the Friends president if you’d like to learn how you can help.
The library can always use extra hands. Some Friends duties include: Helping to create art work for programs, delivering books to shut-ins or people who can’t make it in to the library, covering books, sorting and straightening books, providing treats or helping for special programs.
Donations are welcome at any time of the year. They can be dropped off at the Library or given to any board member. Donations of books are to go to the library. Special arrangements can be made to pick up books at your home. We are 501(c)3, so we are eligible for matching grants. We also have an account at the Community Foundation that will accept donations for us. You can give anonymously at Community Foundation.
