Who are the Friends?

We are a group of people who love the library.  Our goal is to provide meaningful opportunities for community members to support and be supported by the library.

  • Books Down Under (BDU) is our biggest endeavor.  60+ volunteers work many hours to sift, sort, and shelve thousands of books every year.   All proceeds directly benefit library patrons.
  • Members pay annual dues, which also directly support library patrons.
  • Last year Friends funded One Book, Everybody Reads, Children's Summer Reading Club, Juried Adult Art Show, Kids Art Show, Book discussion groups, The Shakespeare Project, and musical performances, among other activities and events.
  • Ambassadors volunteer their time to assist the library in a variety of activities, including greeting people at Auditorium events, assisting with kids events, escorting patrons at One Book, among other activities.

 

Current volunteer opportunities:

  • Ambassadors: Attend a Friends sponsored event to answer questions, accept donations, and be a Friendly face
  • Public Relations: Communicate with local press about Friends' activities
