Friends of the Library


Our state award-winning Friends of the Library organization, founded in 1975 as the Friends of Montgomery District Library Center, provides funds for equipment, materials, and additions to the library’s collection, including a variety of passes to local attractions, including the Elmwood Park Zoo. The Friends also sponsor public events for children and adults at the Montgomery County-Norristown Public Library.

Friends of the Library participate in programs of the Pennsylvania Citizens for Better Libraries (P.C.B.L.) and Friends of Libraries, U.S.A. (FOLUSA).

The purpose of this organization is to maintain an association of persons interested in books and libraries, to focus public attention on library services, facilities, and needs, and to stimulate gifts, desirable collections, endowments, and bequests. The Friends organize and support fundraising events to achieve these purposes.
