Be a Friend

A passion for the Library

The Friends of the Library is a group of dedicated volunteers who recognize the vital importance of libraries in our community. Their efforts support the Library and its programs – both financially and with time spent volunteering.

Community Supporters

The Friends organize and run the Friends Book Store located on Level 3 of the Main Library. The proceeds from the sales in the shop benefit the library and fund needs that might not be covered in the budget.
