We welcome your interest in the Friends! There are many ways to get involved…
Please consider volunteering with the Friends. Our two BasicallyBOOKS bookstores are staffed with over 50 volunteers, and manager Mary Hackett is always looking for additional help.
You may also consider helping with our signature fundraiser – the annual Wine Soiree and Benefit Auction – or assisting with our biannual Gently Used Purse Sale, or helping us to recognize the contributions of our local librarians with our annual Librarian Appreciation Lunch, among other opportunities.
We encourage you to sign up for our printed semi-annual newsletter and our monthly e-newsletter. They will inform you on what’s coming up with the Friends and where future volunteer help could be put to good use.
Another way to get involved is with donations to the Friends. Monetary donations are always welcome. In addition, by making a donation you automatically become a member of the Friends.
Donations made to the Friends will go to our general fund, where they will support ongoing library programs. You may also consider a donation to our Endowment Fund. Donations made to the Endowment Fund are invested for the long term, and earnings on the Fund are used for books, media materials, and for technology improvements and upgrades. The Endowment Fund can also be considered a rainy-day fund for use when the County’s library budget is unable to provide for the needs of the library.
Please consider all these opportunities. And thank you for your support!
