Friends of the Library

Who are the Friends of the Library?

The Friends of the Library is a non-profit organization dedicated to supporting the Library, dating back to 1954. They promote the Library within the community. All proceeds from their membership dues, annual book sales, and ongoing sales of books at the Friendshop at the Central Library and through library carts at the branches go towards the programs and services of the Library.

Volunteer Opportunities

Volunteers are important partners in the Greater Victoria Public Library’s mission to provide universal access to secure and safe library services, to foster the love of reading, and to enhance the quality of life in our community. Supervised by Library staff, volunteers work with patrons and help with special projects and community events. For more information about volunteering opportunities see the Adult Volunteers, Teen Volunteers and Tween Volunteers pages.
