What is a "Friends of the Library Group?"

A Friends of the Library organization can be defined as a group of active volunteers who are independently organized to support, promote, improve, and expand local library services. Friends understand the importance of good library service for the community. The initial reasons for founding a Friends organization vary among libraries and usually involve advocacy, community involvement, fund raising, and public relations.
