About Friends of the Library
How important are Friends groups? They can literally make the difference between a budget increase and cut for their libraries. Since the beginning of the American library movement, Friends groups have been formed by citizens using their collective powers to do everything from running a book sale to ensuring that our American library legacy remains viable. By contributing as a library Friend, you can make a lasting difference for your library.
Friends of the library members come together to fundraise and advocate for the library in our community. A library Friend is always willing to share why they love their library.
The Friends of the Library need you. Whether you want to tackle a big project or donate a few hours of your time, there are opportunities to meet your needs.
Level One Members
These members are ready to lend a helping hand for special events such as book sale set up and stuffing envelopes. With so much to do at the library, level one members can make a big difference with just a few volunteer hours squeezed into a busy schedule.
Level Two Members
These members are ready to take on a challenge and lead by example. Level two members will be responsible for specific projects. This level of commitment will vary widely depending on the task. Those interested might manage an existing fundraiser independently or work with a group to create a new fundraiser for the library. Some existing positions include managing the “Places of the Heart” fundraiser, organizing the envelope stuffing for our biannual mailers, and managing our book sale.
Level Three Members
Calling all leaders! The Friends of the Library need new board members. These volunteers will supervise other club members, organize an annual meeting, manage club funds, liaise with library staff, and organize their own projects.
