What does a Friends group do? They lobby for and help raise funds to support enhancement and expansion of public library services. They host book sales, musical programs, cultural gatherings and specialized workshops for the community.
Many Friends work directly with the Library staff as volunteers, helping deliver library services on a personal, one-to-one basis. Others work to insure that all segments of the community get the maximum benefit from the public library by staging community and civic programs at the library. Still, other members of the Friends may wish to take on specific projects within the library depending on where there is a particular need.
The work (and play) of a Friends group is as varied as its membership, and the scope of its projects limited only by those members' imaginations.
