MHLS Trustee Resources: Friends of the Library

Friends of the Library

From the Handbook for Library Trustees

  • Many libraries form a Friends of the Library organization to help achieve a variety of short-term and long-term goals. The role of a Friends group is distinct from, but related to, the role of a board of trustees. The members of a Friends of the Library are civic-minded people who know that quality library service is important to the life of a community and who are willing to volunteer their time and talents to help the library succeed.
  • Friends of the Library groups are independent organizations, separate and distinct from the library and the library board. read more
