Citizen Organization ‘Friends of the Library’

The Friends of the St. Matthews Eline Library was established in 1987 as a voluntary, non-profit organization, and is made up of citizens who are interested in promoting the welfare and growth of their library, in enriching it’s resources, and in making it’s services better known to the community.

The Friends of the Library group does not provide guidance in running the library system. Instead, it’s focus is at the community level. Through gifts, programs and publications, the Friends of the Library’s purpose is to stimulate awareness and use of the library, and to enhance library programs, materials, and services.
