What is a Friend of the Library?

Friends are the Community’s connection to the Library.

Friends are Volunteers who Support their Branch through:

  • Providing programs for all ages
  • Supporting reading and literacy
  • Fundraising
  • Friends and their Branch Librarian work cooperatively for the benefit of the residents of the Community and the customers of the Library
  • Friends tell friends about the services and programs that make their Library an asset to their Community.
  • Friends make sure their Library funders know how important the Library is to their Community.
