Friends of ICL


The Friends of the Library (FOTL) are people who share a passion for reading, a love for their community, and a strong appreciation of libraries. They are interested in fundraising and promoting awareness of the library within their communities.


FOTL show their support by:

  • Holding fundraising events such as book sales

  • Sponsoring library events

  • Helping to recruit volunteers


The Friends are self-supporting non-profit entities. Membership is open to anyone interested in helping to enhance ICL's services.
