Friends of the Library & Gallery

The Friends of the Library & Gallery share a mutual interest in the continuing development of the collections and programs. The Friends contribute invaluable support for the general collection, the Special Collections, the Library Gallery, and cultural programs. Volunteers assist in organizing events and publications, participate in the Library's outreach to the community, raise funds, and may serve on the the Friends Council, which governs the organization. See our By-Laws for more information on how the Friends group is organized.
