Friends of the Library

The Library Board encourages individuals and groups to volunteer their time and efforts in the service of the Preble County District Library. In appreciation of volunteer services, the Library acknowledges the need to organize volunteer activities and provide for appropriate recognition befitting the benefit to the library and the communities it serves.

Annual recognition will be given based on the number of hours of service.

A library friends group is a formal association of people who unite to plan and execute, in conjunction with library goals and the needs of the library director, programs and events to benefit the library. In particular, a friends group is often heavily involved in fund-raising for the library and often oversees periodic book sales. Friends groups always serve at the pleasure of the library board which is the only body with legal authority to set policy for the development of the library.

Participate! Booksales and fundraisers are the main ways the Friends raise money for the library.

Make a Difference! The Friends have provided copy machines, shelving, program money for children's programs and more for their branch.

Volunteer! Your library is now looking for Volunteers to help with booksales.
