Are you interested in starting a Quadra-based
“Friends of the Library”?!!!!

On August 20, 2009 the Province of British Columbia announced that the provincial dollars for public libraries would be reduced by 22% of previous years.

The Vancouver Island Regional Library has eight “Friends of the Library” groups. These volunteers give their time to support the activities and objectives of their public libraries. Friends also work to enhance the services and resources of their library, focus public attention on the library and its needs, and support fund-raising activities.
If you would be interested in helping me establish a Quadra “Friends of Library,” please email me at lmgruger(at)
