About the Friends

The Friends of the South Burlington Public Library support the mission, programs, events, and staff of the South Burlington Public Library through fundraising, volunteerism, and advocacy.

Since 1984, the Friends of the South Burlington Public Library have been active in revitalizing Library programs, Library materials and the Library space through their membership contributions, volunteer work, and fundraising projects. The Friends are concerned citizens who believe a dynamic Library is the cornerstone to an educated, caring, and stimulating community environment.

Many of the Library programs and services are only possible through the continued generosity of Friends.

In recent years, the Friends directly funded:

 Additionally, the vibrancy of our community is enhanced by the Friends’ events such as the Spring Member Event, the Spring and Fall Used Book Sales, the Summer Ice Cream Social, and the Fall Cookie Walk.

Membership in the Friends of the Library enables you to help your Library thrive, demonstrate your enthusiasm for books and learning, meet other Library enthusiasts who share common interests, and attend the special Friends social events. We invite you to join us!
