Join the Friends - Support your library!
Your generosity allows us to think outside the books....
The Friends of the East Grand Rapids Library (founded in 1958) has a long, rich history like our wonderful community. While the material world has changed greatly since its inception, the foundation of its goal to provide top-notch library services and a community space accessible and relevant to all remains steadfast. To keep pace with these changing times, our wonderful library has morphed itself into a space that has become so much more than just a place to check out a book. It truly is a place of community—a place to meet, a place to create, a place to explore. This metamorphosis would not have been possible without the support of our generous members and volunteers.
Thank you to all who have contributed to this success. If you aren't a member of our Friends of the Library family, I invite you to get involved. Your membership is put to good use to fund projects and programs beyond the scope of what millage dollars allow. As a bonus, members are granted early access to our semi-annual book sales and our newsletters. In addition to our members, our volunteers play a key role in supporting our mission and success. Please consider joining us on the volunteer front. Opportunities range from helping with the Friends Corner Book Shop and semi-annual book sales to serving on the Board of Directors. We'd love to hear from you.
