FRIENDS OF LCL
Click "Donate" to pay
The Friends of the Lansing Community Library, as a separate 501c3 non-profit organization, raise funds for the LCL. Friends are volunteers who act independently of, but in conjunction with, the library’s Trustees and library manager, to preserve, promote, and strengthen library services. The Friends of LCL are
ambassadors for the library, protecting and encouraging sources of funding,
and often partnering with other organizations to
enhance the role of the library in the community.
The Friends not only contribute a set amount of funds each year to the LCL budget to support summer reading and offset technology replacement costs, but they fully fund improvements to and upkeep of the LCL gardens. The Friends also absorb the majority of costs associated with the many varied programs offered at the LCL throughout the year. The Friends financial and volunteer contributions are critical to the success of the LCL.
Friends of LCL Meetings
The Friends Board of Directors meets monthly with an annual meeting in November. All meetings are open to the public. Check the library calendar for upcoming meeting dates and times.
Friends of LCL Book Sales
The Friends of LCL hold two book sales per year, typically in June and November. Donations are accepted at the library year round with the exception of the two weeks before and after each sale. Please check the donation guidelines for what is accepted. Bring all donated items to the LCL circulation desk during open library hours. Do not place donations in the outside book drop as that limited space is reserved for returned library materials.
