The Friends of the Brown County Library (FOL) is a non-profit 501(c) (3) charitable organization that raises funds to benefit the growing needs of the Library and patrons. Our volunteer members advocate, educate, and raise funds on behalf of the Library, its patrons, and the Brown County community. Funds raised through membership dues, book sales and donations directly support many of the library’s programs and activities, including: Summer reading programs for children and adults, after school programs, outreach programming for seniors, IT support and children’s computers.
The FOL is dedicated to promoting our Library as an essential institution of Brown County.
Who we are
Our group, Brown County Jeep Poker Run, is simply made up of volunteers who came together in 2019 to help raise the remainder of the funds required to complete Victory Skatepark. The park was being built in Nashville to benefit the youth of our community and we all felt a need to give them a hand. In the end, with a short amount of planning and an even shorter amount of notice to the public, we had a pretty great turn-out and were able to help the kids!
After the huge amount of success ...AND FUN... that we had with that project, we decided to make the Jeep Poker Run an annual event! Now, more experienced and more organized, we will choose a local community project to benefit each year. Each chosen non-profit organization will receive 100% of the proceeds raised by the events.
We are here to create a fun, quality Brown County event that will help raise money to improve the quality of life in our community!
WE HOPE THAT YOU WILL JOIN US IN 2022!
