Friends of the Library groups give support

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

Through their fundraising efforts, Friends groups undertake projects and supply items that fall outside the established budget of their local library. These dedicated volunteers give many hours of service and raise thousands of dollars to enhance their local libraries.

  • In 2018, the Board of Trustees acknowledged the importance of the Friends by adopting a resolution.
  • In 2017, Sno-Isle Friends of the Library groups raised $260,110.
  • 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. Links to the Friends groups are below:

For information on how to join your local group, ask any staff person in your local library.

Sno-Isle Libraries welcomes volunteers. Please contact the volunteer coordinator at your local library for a list of volunteer opportunities.
