Friends of the Library

Volunteer Program

Friends of the Library welcomes newcomers to the group and invites interested library supporters to pick up a membership brochure at either of the two library branches. As a Friends’ member and volunteer you will gain the personal satisfaction of making a valuable contribution to your community.

Book Sale

We are unable to accept donations at this time.

Every Tuesday, Thursday and the last Saturday of the month the Friends of the Library host a book sale at the Quinte West Public Library. It runs from 10:00a.m.-1:00p.m.

Friends of the Quinte West Public Library is a volunteer, non-profit group that was started in 1993 and has been actively supporting and advocating for the library since that time. Since its inception the Friends have donated over $100,000 for books and materials to the library. We are very proud of the efforts of so many volunteers over the years. Our goal is to enhance the library’s collection by providing materials which are not covered by the annual budget. Each year the library staff prepares a ‘Wish List’ of materials that are needed. Friends’ executives review this “Wish List” and try to provide some of these items.
