The mission of the Friends of the White County Public Libraries is to support our local libraries through advocacy, fundraising, and volunteerism.
What is a Friend?
A Friend is a library advocate!
Friends promote community understanding of the needs and services of the White County Library Cleveland and White County Library Helen.
Friends raise and contribute funds for materials, equipment, and services for the library that cannot be funded through the library’s regular budget.
Friends advocate to local Commissioners, as well as state and federal government on behalf of the library.
Friends act as liaisons between the community and the library.
Friends can also volunteer to help with special library events.
Friends tell others about the Friends and their goals to broaden community support for the library and the Friends.
The Friends is for everyone in our community who is interested in books and libraries, to focus attention on library services and needs and to stimulate gifts, endowments and benefits for the library. Our library system has many needs which cannot be met through regular funding.
Our goal is to help in every way we can to develop the White County Libraries.
Your membership in the Friends of the White County Libraries is important to our community!
