Welcome to Friends of Stirling Road Library

It is our mission to enhance library services by sponsoring programs, underwriting staff development, and supporting fund raising events.
 
To raise money for the library, the Friends sponsor on-going book fairs and various events throughout the year.
 
Our Friends organization believes that volunteers can make a difference in the quality of library services, and we continually work towards that goal.

It is our mutual concern and good will that have given us the opportunity to serve the library successfully.​​
