Friends of the Library

Discover ways to help your community's Friends, Guild, or Association group.

Most library locations have a Friends of the Library group. Friends groups are member-supported, independent non-profit organizations. Their purpose is supporting their local library and its services to the community.

Through fundraising events such as book sales, Friends raise money for the library. These funds help pay for items and events that aren’t in the library's budget. Friends are also library advocates, and increase public awareness of library services. Joining a Friends of the Library group is a great way to support your local library.
