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, funding 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 Bargain Book Shelves, located in the Study Commons on the lower level of the Library.
  • And so much more!
JOIN THE FRIENDS
  • Become part of an energetic, committed group of supporters who believe an excellent Library makes a difference in the life of their community. A membership at any level makes a great gift idea, too!

DONATIONS & FUNDRAISING CAMPAIGNS
  • Drop off your donation at the Circulation Desk on the second level of the Library or mail your donation to:
    • Friends of the Grandview Library
      1685 W. First Avenue
      Columbus, OH 43212
  • Used Book Donation Box
    Books in good condition (free of mildew, mold, and dirt, with no missing pages) can be donated by dropping them into the green Better World Books drop box in the main parking lot by the Library Lawn. This ongoing fundraising campaign replaces indoor book sales that were held throughout the year at the Library.
  • Bargain Book Shelves
    Find great deals on discarded library items (books, music, movies, and more) in the downstairs Study Commons whenever the Library is open.

For more information, please call Administration at 614-486-2954.
