Friends of the Library

Friends of the Fairview Heights Public Library are library patrons who are convinced of the importance of a well equipped, well staffed and up to date library.  Friends believe in the value of reading and the importance of the availability of information and materials to people of all ages.

Friends aid in developing public knowledge of the library and in making its resources and joys better known to the community at large.

Thanks to the Friends, the Library has been able to purchase furniture, equipment, library materials, computers and databases.  The Friends also underwrite the children's Summer Reading programs.

Friends of the Library Meetings

The Friends meet four times a year, the 4th Friday of January, April, July and October at 1:00 pm in the Board Room, lower level.  All meetings are open to the public and the Friends welcome anyone who is interested in learning more about their organization.  Interested in joining the Friends of the Library?  Print and submit the Friends of the Library Application.
