Friends of the Library

Our Friends of the Library groups are community-based, nonprofit volunteers inspiring passionate lifelong learners to invest in their community libraries. They volunteer their time and raise funds through community activities, such as used book sales, to enhance the Library District’s programs and services.

Learn more about upcoming book sales and Friends’ meetings below.

The Friends groups are always looking for volunteers to help with community book sales. To volunteer, contact the group at your local library (information below).
