Friends of the Library

The Friends of the Germantown Community Library is a not-for-profit group that provides support and funding for library activities and projects that are not covered by normal staffing and budget. Since 1963, the Friends have worked to raise funds for materials, programs and services for the library.

All members are encouraged to attend regular meetings at the library at 9:00 am on the second Saturday of each month, September through May. Your ideas and suggestions are welcome. However if you are unable to attend these meetings, your support at our events and your financial support through your dues is appreciated.

To obtain a membership form you can pick one up at the library or we’ll send you one when you  email us at gtlibraryfriends@charter.net.

Please visit our website at www.germantownlibraryfriends.org.
