Friends of the Library

Who are Friends of the Library?
Friends of the Library organizations are separate organizations from the library and are made up of caring, involved people who support a strong public library system for the benefit of the community. Friends enrich the library in many ways. 

  • The Friends volunteer in libraries helping with many important tasks and projects.
  • They focus public attention on library services and advocate for libraries to get the support they need.
  • They sponsor programs and cultural activities to involve the community in the library.
  • They enhance the library by donating important items or by funding programs that are not in the library's budget.
  • Some Friends organizations hold book sales to raise money for the library.
