The Friends of the Library

Friends of the Library are non-profit organizations of public service-minded volunteers, dedicated to promoting and supporting library services in their community.  Each Friends group is as unique as the community they serve; organized and ran by community members with Library staff support.

The Friends are always looking for new members! Contact the Dunnville, Jarvis or Selkirk Libraries to learn more about becoming a Friend.
