The Friends of the Cross Plains Public Library is a community support group with members from the village and surrounding areas. The Friends work with the library staff and library board to enhance and improve library service to the community.


Friends are people—people of all ages from all walks of life—who believe the public library is a valuable asset in the development of their community; its culture, its citizenry and especially its youth.

The Friends of the Cross Plains Public Library encourage you to participate by becoming a member. You can make our library better by becoming a Friend.

Our email address is rgplfriends [at]  Please contact us with your questions!
