Friends of the Library

The Friends of the Grand Forks and District Public Library is a non profit organization of volunteers with its own constitution. In November of 1984 the Friends became a registered charity under the Society Act of British Columbia.

In cooperation with the Library Board and the Library Director, the Friends support the library through a variety of volunteer activities and fund raising. They promote the use of the library and focus the attention of the public on the library and its services.

The Friends of the Library receive and encourage gifts, endowments and bequests for the library. You can make a tax-deductible donation. We wish to acknowledge the donation from the Fritz family that has provided an endowment fund for the Friends to use in support of the Library.

Here’s an idea of what you could become involved with if you joined the Friends of the Library:

  • Have fun helping at the Book Sales
  • Provide refreshments and hospitality for Library functions
  • Participate in the annual Christmas Cookie Sale
  • Help deliver books to the homebound
  • Share ideas and meet new people
