Friends of the Library 

Active Friends may serve on one of the following committees:

  1. Fundraising: Investigate fundraising opportunities in support of library needs (programs, equipment, furnishings), plan and coordinate library fundraising activities (e.g. book sale, cookbook sale, etc.).
  2. Volunteering at the Library: Fill out and submit a volunteer application form -- with coordination by library staff, volunteers are needed for shelving materials, adopt-a-shelf volunteer, library displays and bulletin boards, computer assistant/trainer, and many more opportunities.
  3. Library Programs: In consultation with library staff, with Friends funding, look at options for library programs (for children, teen and adults, like a magician, a puppet show, an author reading, teen grooming tips, searching the Internet, etc.); committee members will also volunteer and supervise the programs.
  4. Advocacy: For those interested in promoting the library as a viable and essential service to the community; might involve legislative letter writing in support of library funding at the state level, or visiting the Annandale City Council or surrounding Township meetings to encourage ongoing support of the library; consider attending Library Legislative Day in St. Paul (usually in February or March each year); continue advocating for the library as an integral part of the education and recreation in our community.
