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 Needs a New Home


We are looking for a new location for this year’s book sale. If we can’t find one the sale may not happen this year.
