Who are the Friends of the Guelph Public Library?

We believe that the GPL is a necessary and 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.
