“Putting The Pieces Together To Serve The Community”

Who are the Friends?

Friends of the Library are an integral part of the Harlem Library’s mission of service.  The volunteer hours, financial support and energy that we as Friends of the Library invest in the library, enriches the lives of young and old in our community far beyond the traditional role of the library.

The MORE  Friends, the BETTER!

Friends need to:

  •  stimulate greater interest in bringing people to the library;
  •  assist in maintaining, improving and enlarging the library’s resources and services;
  •  interpret the library’s needs to the community;
  •  support the library staff with volunteers;
  •  foster and promote new and innovative ways of involving the library in the everyday life of the community
