Friends Of The Library
A Library's best friends are the Friends of the Library! These wonderful volunteers work hard to support the Library and the staff so we can do our best to serve you!
Since 1974, the Friends of the Grandview Library have conducted fundraising activities to benefit the Library while focusing public attention on Library services, facilities, and needs. Each year the Friends raise & donate thousands of dollars to the Library, and they now pay for the majority of Library programs & special events.The Friends provide:
- Support for the Library throughout the community
- Summer Reading Club materials
- Refreshments, prizes and/or gifts for Library functions
- Equipment such as photocopiers, display units, and book carts
- Sponsorship of special entertainment for children's activities
- Assistance during Library Levy campaigns
- Inexpensive books for avid readers through the Book & AV Sales and Bargain Book Shelves (downstairs in the Study Commons).
- And so much more!
