Friends of the Library

Friends of the Library are non-profit volunteer organizations, bringing together involved, caring people who support and promote the services and programs of their community library.

Through their fund raising efforts, Friends groups undertake projects and supply items which fall outside the established budget of their local library. Each group of dedicated volunteers gives countless hours of service and raises thousands of dollars to enhance the services of their local library.

  • In 2012, Sno-Isle Friends of the Library groups raised over $243,000
  • Funds raised by our Friends provide programming for all ages, support the Summer Reading Program for children, purchase furniture and other library enhancements

All Friends of the Library groups welcome new members.

The only entrance requirement is interest.
