About Us

The Friends of the Gallatin Library is a group – made up of every day patrons and advocates just like you – that is passionate about our library.

We provide resources beyond what the library can do on its own. We work closely with library leadership and staff to determine where our support can make a difference. That’s why the Friends are proud to fund critical programs such as the Summer Reading Program and others that are touchstones of the library experience. We also support campaigns for the money that provides public funding for the library.
