Friends of the Berkeley Public Library

The Library is extremely thankful for the former and current Friends of the Berkeley Public Library group who regularly contribute to the success of library activities. The Friends assist with grounds maintenance, used book fundraising, event planning, and home delivery services. The Friends are volunteers and are always welcoming new members.


The library is always interested in community volunteers who are interested in working with the library by teaching/helping with events. Whether you're a nurse, account, lawyer, or gardener: if you have skills that you're interested in sharing with the community, we'd love to hear from you. Alternatively, if you just want to lend a hand during library Holiday/Special events, let us know!

To get in touch with the Friends, please email them at fol(@)

You can also download an application and drop it at the main help desk at the library.
