Friends of Libraries groups have their very own national week of celebration! United for Libraries will coordinate the 12th annual National Friends of Libraries Week from Oct. 15-21, 2017. Use the time to creatively promote your group in the community, raise awareness, and promote membership. This is also an excellent opportunity for your library and Board of Trustees to recognize the Friends for their help and support of the library. Explore ideas and resources below, and watch a video of authors and readers discussing why they think libraries are so important.
