So you think you want to be a Friend, but feel a little confused? Here are some steps to clear things up:
Friends support the library in many ways, through volunteering at events or as daily staff, planning events, advocacy and financially by paying annual dues. Being part of the Friends means being part of a group where you can build relationships within your community, be part of something rewarding while promoting literacy and library support.
1. Think about how you would like to help. We need daily staff, event planners, fundraising help, grant writers, and more. It's okay if you do not know yet, you can always see what there is to do and jump in anywhere later.
2. Fill out the form under Join Us.
You will receive a Welcome Email from us within 5 days with more information.
3. As soon as you have submitted your form to join the Friends, you can go to the Forum for Friends on the Friends main page, where you will be prompted to create an account. After admin approval, which you should receive confirmation of, you will have access to the Friends of the Jarrell Community Library Discussion Forum. This forum is where all committee discussions will take place, aside from meetings. Please click "Follow" on the discussion thread to receive email notifications when posts are made.
Are you thinking that you would love to support the library but can't commit to volunteering right now? Your financial support is just as important and critical as any other volunteer work.
We look forward to meeting you!
