Libraries are an important part of communities for creating a haven of education, inspiration and opening our eyes to a world through books and publications. A critical component to the success of libraries everywhere are groups called Friends of the Library.
These amazing groups of people are quite literally the greatest friends of the library in their community. Members of Friends of the Library groups usually consist of enthusiastic and energetic people who believe that libraries are a social and intellectual center of communities. These groups are comprised of people that use the library, and the services within it, individuals that raise both funds and awareness for the library and people that help provide governance and leadership for the library or library system.
