Friends of the Library

The Friends of the Library are dedicated to helping the Nelson Public Library through successful booksales and other creative fundraising efforts, with the funds going to new books, necessary technologies, furnishings and program supplies.

Join us: new members are welcome. It’s a great way to meet people and contribute to a vital and important part of your community. We meet the second Tuesday of every month from noon until 1 p.m. at the library, and bring a bag lunch. In July and August we meet at Lakeside Park for an informal bag lunch and socializing.

For more information, contact: NPLemail nelsonlibraryfriends@gmail.com, or call Chair Miriam Williams at 250-352-9479.

Thanks for your help!
