Friends of the Library

We need more Friends like you!

Quite simply, the Friends of the SSLDL is a group of community minded volunteeers who love the library! The Friends contribute over $15,000 annually in gifts to the Library to purchase the extras which help make our library special. Our Friends maintain the beautiful gardens, staff the Book Room,  organize fundraisers, and advocate for the Library in countless valuable ways. Click here for the history of the library gardens.

Joining the Friends is both a wonderful and effective way to meet and work along side great individuals and support your Library!
