Friends of the Library

The Friends of the Chesterfield Township Library, organized in 2001, is an independent 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization, a volunteer group dedicated to strengthening and improving library services for our community. Even in a community that loves its library, public funding is not enough for the library to provide all the essential resources that residents seek. The Library depends on the Friends to support those resources. The Friends invest advocacy and education, contributions, fund-raising efforts, gift administration, and volunteer efforts in the Library because strong libraries make strong communities.

Adults seeking volunteer opportunities at the Library are encouraged to become a member of the Friends of the Chesterfield Township Library.
