The Friends of Les Cheneaux Community Library (FLCCL) is an independent, nonprofit volunteer organization that exists to help the library, and the communities it serves, thrive.
FLCCL supports the library by:
Stimulating community awareness and use of the library
Creating public support for our library and the services provided
Funding programs and materials not covered by library budgets
Sponsoring speakers and programs of interest for all ages
Managing and maintaining the building that houses the library
In 1997 community members launched an effort that would lead to the formation of Friends of Les Cheneaux Community Library and, eventually, a new library to serve the community.
The Les Cheneaux Community Library was built in 2003 through the work of a committed group of volunteers and the generosity of many in our region. This beautiful library is a true reflection of the unique character of the Les Cheneaux area.
The log cabin structure features a quiet reading room with a fireplace, computer lab, wireless internet, wrap-around porch, comfortable furnishings, murals and stained glass by local artisans, and a meeting room with a large screen TV for media presentations.
LCCL is an affiliate of Superior District Library. Funding from a small millage, and donations cover day to day costs of running the library, including staff salaries, internet, interlibrary loans, books and other materials. Friends of Les Cheneaux Community Library, provides maintenance of building and grounds, including utilities, insurance, cleaning, landscaping, snow removal, and trash removal.
The Library has over 2500 members and houses a collection of over 19,000 titles.
Donations comprise a portion of our budget and the Friends of LCCL’s budget. The generosity of our patrons is greatly appreciated.
