Volunteers help Friday Memorial Library enrich its services and will not be used to replace the work done by paid library staff. The volunteer program serves the needs throughout all library departments and services. The library staff and its volunteers work together for mutual satisfaction and for the benefit of the library and community. Anyone interested in volunteering must submit a completed and signed Volunteer Application.

Curbside Pickup

We encourage curbside pickup for any patrons who are at elevated risk, are unvaccinated, or are uncomfortable in public spaces. The process is quick and easy for your convenience. Please call the library to schedule your pickup time and we will prepare your requested items. Materials will be located in a receptacle behind the curbside return box on the corner of Arch Avenue and First Street. Weather may play a factor if we are able to offer curbside services.

Book Club Support

The Friday Memorial Library is willing to provide assistance to book clubs in the community. Some of the ways we can do that include:

  • Recommendations and advice on title selection
  • Placing copies on hold for members of the book club

In order to provide this assistance to any book club, the Library needs to have the following information provided by the club:

  • The name and contact information for a point person who will be in charge of managing the club account.
  • Names of books that the club wishes to read
  • Dates of book club meetings

For further information on how we can support your book club, contact us at 715.243.0431.
