Who We Are (Fun-Loving Contributors to the Library)
The Friends of the Lakeview Community Library (Friends of LCL) is a non-profit, tax-exempt organization that provides funding for needed materials for the Lakeview Community Library, ranging from books and DVDs, furniture, and events.
We are composed of over 30 members and are interested in making new friends! If you are interested in helping the library with your creative ideas, looking for volunteer opportunities, and meeting new people please consider joining us at our next meeting!
The next meeting of the Friends will be in April. No date has been established yet, but please keep checking here and our Facebook for more information! An agenda will be posted here a week before the meeting.
What We Do
The Friends lend support, enthusiasm, and ideas to the library! They fundraise for library materials as well as helping out with events, work projects, and other programs. They also support and advocate for the library in the local communities as well as making sure the library is aware of these communities’ needs.
