Friends of the Library

The Friends of the Etowah Carnegie Library was established in the summer of 2010. Our Friends group is a voluntary community organization dedicated to supporting the Etowah Carnegie Library. The sole purpose of the Friends of the Etowah Carnegie Library is to support the library......our sole support is from your membership dues and donations.

What do the Friends do?

The Friends are a 501(c)3 non-profit community-supported group that enhances library services and facilities through activities beyond the scope of the library's regular budget through fundraising, volunteerism, and raising the community profile of the library.

What have the Friends done?

The Friends sponsor the Summer Reading Programs, help fund the Handicap Accessible Lift, purchase new book stacks, new computer carrels, digitized copies of the Etowah Enterprise newspaper for patron use, provide a coffee bar, sponsor the historical marker, and more.

Why should you join?

By joining the Friends, you join other concerned citizens dedicated to promoting the value of books, literacy and other available resources of our community library. Meetings are held monthly at the library every third Tuesday at 5:30 p.m. Join us to help plan for the future of your library! We always need volunteers to help raise money, advocate for the library, and assist with book sales.
