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 GIANT book sale.

To date the sale has raised more than $750,000 to assist the library with current programming and to be available for use when a new main library is re-built.




Thank you!

Thank you for another successful book sale!

…To our dedicated volunteers, over 200 of them!

…To our sponsors, donors, and suppliers

…To the neighbourhood around the sale, the city of Guelph, and surrounding areas

…To the first timers and the faithful shoppers who return year after year

$116, 684,000 raised this year, $875,000 to date.

Let’s do it again in 2020, and let’s make it to a million!
