Who are the Friends of the Guelph Public Library?

We are an arms-length group of community volunteers who believe that the Guelph Public Library is a necessary & vital community institution.

We support the goals of the Library.

We volunteer to make a great library even better.

We promote the Library in the community through special programs, fundraising, and advocacy.

Our main fundraiser is our annual Community Book Sale.

Last fall a cheque for $1 million, revenue accrued through these book sales, was presented to the public library for use in the main library building project.

The 2024 Book Sale is ON!

Thanks to the generous support of the BAMCO Group Guelph, we have a location for this year’s sale.

We’ll bring you much more detail about the sale soon. Keep watching the website and social media for updates.

In the meantime, hang on to your donations!

Thank you Bamco for enabling this year’s sale!



To the recipients of this year’s Lifetime Memberships, Retiring Chief Librarian Steve Kraft, and Mary Mulholland, long-time executive member of the Friends.
