Friends of the Library

Who We Are & What We Do

The Friends are great champions of the West Vancouver Memorial Library. We are active volunteers and quiet supporters working together to enrich library programs, collections and services. Our efforts focus on fundraising projects and hospitality. We host the Remembrance Day reception and serve refreshments at author readings and concerts. 

We care about our library and proudly promote and enhance its exceptional service to our community.

New members are always welcome! 

Yearly memberships are $10, and $5 for those under 18.  Members receive admittance to the "Friends Only" Book Sale Preview, the Friends of the Library Newsletter and invitations to regular meetings.  Applications may be picked up in the Library, or you can print out the  membership form and return it to the Library. 

For more information, please call 604.925.7410 or email us at folwestvan@gmail.com.
