What is a Friends Group?
A Friends Group can be self-defined. Most libraries have community members interested in lending their support, time and skills to make the library a better place. Friends of Libraries work with the staff and trustees to help the library achieve its short and long term goals. Friends can take on special projects, sponsor programs, keep the staff informed about the needs of the community and participate in fund-raising events. Friends can help regularly, volunteer once a year or offer financial support.
Why does the DRML need a Friends group?
The DRML has been a huge success. Each year the library serves more patrons and sponsors more programs. The library has become a place to meet, read and enjoy time together. The library is fortunate to have a solid foundation of community support. It’s time to build on this foundation. In order to continue to achieve excellence, we are asking for more patrons to get involved.
If you are interested in being a Friend of the DRML call the library at 802-899-4962. Check our calendar for current meeting times.
