Friends of the Library

Who are the Friends?

The Friends of the McCall Public Library, working cooperatively with the Library Board and library Director, promote the library as a center for learning by implementing community programs and projects. This includes the raising and expending of funds and the acceptance of gifts.
Who can join?
We meet every other month in the conference room of McCall Public Library.  We welcome all who are interested.
What do we do?

  • We sell used books at the Pump House – proceeds from our sales go towards materials and equipment for the library.
  • We develop special library projects such as Children’s section remodel – new carpet and children’s mural.
  • We support programs with materials and/or funding.


The Pump House

The historic Pump House is a second hand book store operated by the Friends of the McCall Public Library. The historic little log building is on State Street across from the McCall Memorial Hospital and next door to the Central Idaho Historical Museum. Books are donated and sold for an average price of 50¢ to $1.00. Books on tape and CD, fiction, biography, trade books and hard backs, cookbooks and children’s books are donated, shelved, and sold by a crew of about 15-20 volunteers. The Pump House serves as the ongoing fundraiser for the Friends of the McCall Public Library.

The Friends were active in donating the mural for the Children’s Section of McCall Public Library

What a wonderful adition to the children’s area! It’s also great to have local items included in the mural(Payette, Sharlie,etc. )”
Mary Ann Traughber.

The new mural is such a wonderful addition to our library. The vibrant colors and imaginative literary depictions will surely inspire many generations of readers, now and to come.
