In the simplest terms, The Friends of the Pendleton Community Public Library are pretty awesome.
But, if you want to know more than that, keep reading...
The Friends of the Pendleton Community Public Library are a non-profit volunteer organization that helps build a sense of community at the library in a myriad of ways.
By sponsoring fundraising events such as the Lucky Duck Race
, quarterly book sales, and the Gingerbread Cottage Build, the Friends are able to support programs such as summer reading, Silly Safari, Morning with Mommy, and Donuts with Daddy. But, wait. There's more! The cafe area in the library is sponsored by the Friends who purchase coffee supplies to make your experience more relaxing and enjoyable. The annual Mary Ahrens scholarship is funded by the Friends and awarded to a library staff member for professional development. The Friends also pay for CPR training for staff members just in case a librarian needs to save your life. Yes, the Friends are lifesavers in many, many ways.
If you want to get involved in supporting the library by becoming a Friend, it's easy. Just fill out an application. A volunteer membership is free. Simply donate five hours per year. Choose from a variety of activities and events that interest you. Or consider becoming a Friends patron and support them financially with a donation. If you're looking to join a fun group of community-minded friends, then look no further. Whether you bake cookies, take photos, make flyers, or talk to total strangers about what's happening at the library, your volunteer time supports our community. Join today!
JOIN IN THE FUN!
