What are the Friends of the Library?
The Friends of the Library group helps fund programming, events and more held at Murray Library. By joining and donating, you will be helping the library grow and develop, while also receiving benefits yourself!
Programming | Friends donations contribute to our Kids Summer Reading program.
Projects | Friends donations contribute to many library projects including our new Library Statue.
Centennial Legacy Art Project
Take Me There - Artists: Donna Pence & Paul Heath
To commemorate the Library’s 100th year, these historic Take Me There glass mosaic panels will be installed in the round west-facing windows of the library. These panels are 50″ X 80″ each and detail landmarks and culture of Murray city.
The Friends of the Murray Library are accepting donations to help get this project completed. All donations are tax deductible.
Donations are currently being accepted at the library and can be made by cash or check. Please make checks payable to the Friends of the Murray Library and mail to 166 East 5300 South, Murray, Utah 84107.

Friends of the Library Book Sale
Donations | The Murray Library is happy to accept your generous book, CD, and movie donations. Donated items support the library in a variety of ways. Depending on condition, some items are added to the permanent collection, a portion is sold to book vendors, while others are sent to charitable organizations. The majority of donations, however, end up in our ongoing Friends of the Murray Library Book Sale. Donations are tax-deductible; simply ask for a receipt from a staff member when you drop off your donation.
Ongoing Book Sale | Located right at the entrance of the library is our ongoing used book sale. Items for sale are culled from patron donations and library books discarded from our permanent collection. Items are sold for $0.50 each. Additionally, a number of items are sold each week through silent auction (located on the top shelf of both sale racks). Profits from the book sale go to the Friends of the Murray Library, a 501(c)(3) that helps fund events, programming, and art projects here at the library.
