Friends of the Library
The Friends of the Library perform an important function at the Avoca Branch, helping fund and plan programs, donating both time and food to the library. They are invaluable to our continue success, and Avoca would not be the same without them. If you are interested in joining the Avoca Friends of the Library, we typically meet on the first Monday of each month at noon. This month, due to schedules changes on New Years' Day, we're meeting on January 8.
If you are interested in joining the Friends of the Library or learning more about what they do, drop in for our monthly meeting or contact the Avoca Branch Library at 423-968-9663.
