Purpose of Friends of the Library

The Friends of the Clarksville-Montgomery County Public Library is a non-profit organization of people working together to support our library.  People who love books and learning, and love spending time with others who have similar passions.  Generally, friends support the library in one of two ways:

  • They volunteer their ideas, time, and talent.
  • They make a monetary contribution.

Benefits of Becoming a "Friend"

  • Members of Friends of the Library have a special preview night at the annual book sales.
  • Members of Friends of the Library receive newsletters and flyers that update them on the monthly book clubs and activities going on at the library.
  • Members have the opportunity to become a part of a group of citizens dedicated to the growth of the Public Library.

How Has "Friends" Supported Your Library?

Friends of the Library sponsors receptions and special occasions, supports monthly fish tank maintenance and annually supports the Summer Reading Program.   In the past, Friends of the Library has purchased stained glass windows, folding tables for the library and many other pieces of furniture and equipment.  Friends of the library also regularly buys books and videos for the library.
