The Friends function only because of the hard work of volunteers. We need your help!
If you would like to help in any of the ways listed below, please contact us. We’d love to hear from you.
Book Sale and The Book Cellar
There are many ways that you can help with the book sales from donating books to sorting books to working at the book sale. We have a “Social Book Sorting” evening on Wednesdays. (For details, see the calendar in the Friends’ Room on the lower level of the library.) The Book Sale Chairman will provide a brief training to all new book sorters. (We’re sorry, but book dealers may not sort books.)
The FGFL newsletter is published several times a year. We are always looking for fresh article ideas, help with editing and layout, and assistance preparing and mailing the newsletters. For more information, visit our Newsletter page.
There is plenty to do to help out in our membership area from making phone calls to managing membership data.
There is always so much going on with the group, we need volunteers to help us spread the word about our exciting book sales and projects. Would you like to help us put up fliers, create bulletin boards and make announcements?
No matter what your expertise is, there is always a place for you at the FGFL
“Some of my most vivid memories of childhood include trips to the Gale Free Library: ascending the back staircase to the magical children’s room for story time; sitting on the rolling step stool in the basement reading; the smell of the books, the reverent hush of a sacred place, and the bliss of getting lost between the covers of a book as I felt a new world emerge before me. With so many books in one place, the library was my idea of heaven. I have recently moved back to the area and find myself, like a magnet, drawn to the library, quite happy to give a little bit in return for so many wonderful memories.”

Volunteering with the Friends, “…is my way of giving back to an organization that has been such an integral part of my family’s life. It makes me feel connected to the community in which I live.”
