The Friends have been helping to build support for the library since 1957. They have provided financial support from membership fees and volunteer support at the Friends of the Library Used Book Sales. Funds raised enable the library to stretch budget dollars and improve services.
Some of the services the Friends of the Madison Heights Public Library have provided include: youth programs, prizes for the Summer Reading Programs, a disc repair machine to help prolong the life of book-on-CD and DVD collections, an HD Flat panel TV screen that displays a slide show of upcoming library events, and the annual Book Page subscription. Beginning in November 2022, they are sponsoring a hybrid in-person and virtual author speaker series.
