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.

After an annual gift to the library for current programming, investments from revenue sources such as the annual Book Sale accrue to nearly $1 million. This will be available for use when a new library is built.
