Friends of Bayfield Library (FOBL) is a non-profit organization of volunteers that exists to establish closer ties between the Bayfield Library and the local community, increase awareness of the functions and resources of the library, promote literacy, and raise funds for special projects. Through monies raised from FOBL memberships, the annual book sale, and Red Cart book sales, we are able to organize or sponsor many great events!
