About Us

Friends of Libraries are:
Volunteers acting collectively and independently to preserve, promote and strengthen library services in harmony with library management and policies.

The Friends group is a great way to get connected with your Claresholm Public Library.
Being a Friend means knowing that you are making a real contribution to ensure that your
Library remains a vital presence in the community.

Membership Fee: $5.00/year
