Friends of the Library chapters are found at most Mid-Mississippi Regional Library System branch locations. Friends groups are citizens who join together to support, improve, and promote their local library. Friends groups raise funds for special library programs or services, advocate for library services, volunteer with children’s summer reading programs, sponsor National Library Week events, as well as performing other duties and activities.
While the library system’s administrative board of trustees and local MMRLS Friends chapters share a common vision of the library for the local community, they are separate, autonomous organizations, each with distinct roles.
If you are interested in joining the Friends of the Library organization, please visit or contact your local branch for more information today!
