Special Friends

The Friends of the Library are appreciative of the past support from volunteers for the Special Friends of Ralph Ellison Library and the Special Friends of The Village Library. In 2019, both Special Friends groups determined not to continue as individual membership groups within the Friends. Funds raised by both groups will be restricted for the benefit of the respective libraries.

Individuals interested in supporting their local library are invited to search for library volunteer opportunities or make a restricted gift to the Library Endowment Trust. Funds raised by membership and sales of the Friends of the Library will continue to benefit all Metropolitan Library System locations.
