. . . actually, we get by with a lot of help from our Friends! October 21-27, 2018 is the 13th annual celebration of National Friends of Libraries Week and it’s the perfect opportunity for East Central Regional Library to give our Friends a big shout out for all they do to make a difference for us every single day.
East Central Regional Library has the support of 13 Friends groups across the 6-county region. Their members are champions for libraries. Friends provide support at the grass-roots level by assisting library staff with projects and programming, raising funds, and advocacy efforts.
“Friends of the Library groups allow us to enhance our services and multiply the impact we have in communities,” says ECRL Executive Director Carla Lydon. “They are strong library supporters and we are so grateful to the countless Friends volunteers who give of their time, talents, and financial support to make East Central Regional libraries a vital community resource.”
Friends groups are always looking for new members and volunteers. Speak with staff at your local East Central Regional Library location to find out information about Friends activities and find out how to become a member.
Friends, we thank you for all you do to make our libraries better!
