Salmon Arm's Friends of the Library group was formed in 1998. The Friends support the library through advocacy and fundraising. The group organizes two book sales a year, in January and June. Book sale proceeeds help sponsor library programs such as author visits and special children's programs and contests. The Friends have donated several furnishings for the library,including our lounge chairs and the loveseat for the children's area. Friends also volunteer with the library's HomeBound delivery program. Meetings are held 5 times a year on the third Monday of January, April, June, September and November.
The Friends are actively looking for new members who would like to support the Salmon Arm and South Shuswap ORL Branches. you love the library,have time to help, contact Sherry at email@example.com for more information.
