Friends of the Library
Friends of the Library support the library, its programs and collection.
The library is an important asset to our community. Friends play an important role assisting the Library to fulfill its mission and goals.
Some highlights of our recent activities:
In 2015, Friends brought in over $20,000.00 in grants & fundraising to the library.
The hugely popular Annual Book Sale alone netted over $3,500.00.
Friends also help to publicize and champion the library through activities such as booths at both the Northwest Trade Expo & at Bulkley Valley Exhibition.
