Community Involvement

Friends of the Library

West Lincoln Public Library is looking for volunteers to join the 'Friends of the West Lincoln Public Library'.

Who are the Friends of the Library?

We are community members that support the library and its services by providing our time and/or expertise; we are volunteers who want to ensure resources are available at all three branches of the West Lincoln Public Library to meet the needs of our community.

Our group participates in community outreach, attends community events, organizes fundraising events to support and promote Library services that are not attainable through library funds, and advocates for a strong public library system in West Lincoln.

If you are interested in becoming a FRIEND, please contact Lisa Kaplaniak by email at friendsofwlpl@gmail.com If you do not have access to email, please talk to one of the library staff.

Ways to Volunteer

Executive member: participates in monthly meetings (idea development, organization and event building) and assists with community outreach & events hosted by the group.

Supportive member: does not participate in the meetings but supports events hosted by the group as needed and when available.

Thank you for your support!!
