About the Foundation of Friends
The Foundation of Friends works alongside the Indian Valley Public Library Board of Trustees, Library Director, and Development Officer on all projects. General member meetings are held every other month. Sub-committees made up of active volunteers also meet once a month in order to continue the progression of sub-tasks. Currently, the largest projects the Foundation of Friends is working on involves pre-planning for the capital campaign and the raising of funds through the many fundraisers held through the library.
