Enriching the Library through Volunteer and Fundraising Efforts
The Friends of the Vigo County Public Library was organized in 1984 by a small group of enthusiastic supporters who were united by a common concern for the well-being of the Vigo County Public Library. In 1992, the Friends of the Library became a 501(c)(3) organization.
Now more than 170 members strong, Friends of the Vigo County Public Library is dedicated to promoting the Library as a cultural, educational and recreational asset to the community and to strengthening support for the Library by increasing awareness of library resources, programs and services.
All revenue earned from fundraising is committed to strengthening the Library as a valuable resource for the citizens of Vigo County, bringing together people, ideas and information.
The Friends' organization is managed by a 15-member board of volunteers who meet on the first Wednesday of each month to conduct Friends' business. The organization's membership year is May to May.
