Get on Board
We are seeking enthusiastic library supporters who are willing to volunteer their experience, knowledge, and skills to the Friends of the Minneapolis Central Library Board of Directors.
The Friends support the Library and its programs through volunteerism, forging connections with our neighbors, increasing awareness of the Library's contributions to our community and advocating for the community within the Library. In addition, the Friends Board underwrites library programs through mini-grants funded out of membership donations.
The time commitment is manageable, the monetary commitment is manageable, and the reward is great! You'll know you are contributing to the vibrancy of the Minneapolis Central Library and making a difference in the lives of many people.
To "get on board", simply let us know of your interest by emailing email@example.com and one of our current Board members will be happy to meet with you and answer your questions.
