With a Little Help from Our Friends

Like many libraries, Cuyahoga County Public Library benefits from the support and advocacy of its Friend of the Library members. Our 25 individual Friends of the Library groups volunteer their time and energy to raise funds in support of Library programming, exhibitions, special events and activities.
Friends groups provide valuable support services to the Library. They assist in maintaining historical community records, publish newsletters of their activities, develop community calendars, and even sponsor public forums on civic affairs. They also act as our cheerleaders, spreading the word to friends and neighbors about the great services the Library offers.

It’s good to have friends.
