I remember being a page for the Las Vegas- Clark County Library District and the awesome, friendly, and dedicated staff and volunteers who ran our branch’s Friends of the Libary store. It was their kindness that made me seek out Friends of the Multnomah County Library when I moved to Portland. I was a volunteer at their store and Used Book Sale before currently being a Board Member.
It’s been a pleasure.

National Friends of the Library Week is October 20-26!
I’ve been busy preparing for the Friends of the Multnomah County Library’s largest fundraiser of the year- our Fall Used Book Sale. As Co-Chair for the Membership, Communications, and Marketing Committee, it also meant planning events, working on newsletters, and attending meetings.
Celebrate National Friends of the Library Week by visiting your local library and your local Friends’ association!
