What is Friends of the Library, and why should you join? Friends of the Library is a national organization of library supporters with local chapters throughout our state. Friends groups are library advocates who operate independently from their local library but come together to support, improve, and promote their local library.
By joining, Friends of the Library members will receive a unique library card that provides a special system-wide benefit of half-price print/copy/fax services. Friends groups help raise funds for special library programs, advocate for library services, volunteer for the children’s summer reading program, sponsor National Library Week events, and perform other voluntary activities. This low-fee membership would also be an excellent holiday gift idea for the library enthusiast in your life.
“By joining a Friends of the Library group, you can help make a difference in your local community and help expand the reach of the library. Contacting your local library branch is your first step to finding out more information. You may also visit midmisslib.com/friends for further details,” said Lisa Ramage, Branch Services Coordinator.
For more information about all library services, call or visit your local MMRLS branch library or the library’s website at: midmisslib.com. All library services are made possible thanks to the continued financial support of our local elected officials.
