Join the friends of the library
Would you like to become a Friend of the Library?
The Friends of the Library are a not-for-profit group of volunteers who support the public library through activities and fund-raisers. Money earned goes for programs, equipment, books, videos, furniture, or other things the library needs and can’t afford to purchase. Being a Friend is a great way to meet other people who are interested in books and the library, to bring public attention to all the materials and services the library has to offer, to encourage and receive gifts, endowments and bequests to the library, and to raise funds to provide special programs for kids, teens, adults, and seniors at the library.
Each Friends of the Library group supports the activities and raises funds for the needs of their local branch. Contact your branch to get involved or click on a link below to get more information about becoming a Friends of the Library member.
The Friends of Library @ Altenburg is a fund-raising group that helps raise money to purchase new books and equipment, present special library programs, and more.

Mission Statement: to support our library through financial and creative means that ultimately improves the library experience for the community.
Don’t forget that the library often has need of volunteers to help with extra jobs around the library. Some may be short-term but others can be ongoing. Just ask one of the librarians for more information.
NOTE: To protect the health of our volunteers, the use of volunteers is currently suspended.
