Who we are

The Friends of Richmond Hill are library users and supporters who play a key role in promoting library programs and services in their communities. As a service organization, the Friends of Richmond Hill chapter strives to assess and meet the needs of its local library and user community. We works in partnership with our library manager manager to attain these service goals. Needs range from fund-raising activities to help meet program/material/service needs above what the library’s budget can provide to acting as advocates through lobbying of state and local officials.  

What we do

Each Friend is a walking, talking public relations ambassador for the library and an organized Friends group is essentially a validation of the library's importance to its community.

Friends volunteer their ideas, expertise, time and other resources to help;

· Showcase our local library and its services and programs
· Promote the enjoyment and use of the library to everyone in the 
  Richmond Hill/Kew Gardens community
· Raise funds for projects and materials beyond the library's budget
· Sponsor special programs that encourage reading and literacy

· Year round opportunities to associate with other enthusiastic
