Friends of Libraries groups have their very own national week!
October 16-22, 2022 is the 17th annual National Friends of Libraries Week, and it’s the perfect opportunity to give our Friends a big shout out for all they do to make a difference for us.
Vail Public Library receives a lot of help from our Friends. Over the years they have funded children’s programming, provided new furniture, contributed funding for new and emerging technology, and supported the project to digitize the Vail Trail newspaper. In addition, the Friends have rallied countless times to advocate for adequate library funding.
SUPPORT YOUR LIBRARY
The Friends of Vail Public Library works to assist the library director in promoting and improving library services, materials and facilities; and, in seeking donations, gifts and bequests.
WHO WE ARE AND WHAT WE DO
The Friends of Vail Public Library helps host cultural speakers and programs at the library, works to enrich and enhance existing library services, assists with the annual Fourth of July book and bake sales and advocates for the library through public awareness. In addition, Friends support the many facets of the digital archives initiative.
