The mission of the Tamarack District Library is to provide materials and services that fulfill the recreational, informational, educational and cultural needs of the entire community in an atmosphere that is welcoming, respectful and businesslike.
The Friends of the Tamarack District Library is a committee of the library that works with and helps in raising funds, promoting library services, and holding events in the community in conjunction with the library. They meet the first Wednesday of the month at 10:00AM at the library. The Friends of the Tamarack Library would like to invite you to join the Friends organization if you are not already a member. Adults can become a member for an annual due of $3.00 and students can join for $1.00. We also have gift certificates available. Download a copy of the membership letter here.
