Friends of the Library 

The Simi Valley Friends of the Library is a non-profit organization that works in support of the Simi Valley Public Library. The Friends are best known for their volunteerism, special programs, fundraising and Friends of the Library Bookstore which is located inside the Library.

By volunteering their time, members of the Friends group enable the library to offer services and materials that would otherwise not be covered by regular funding. As community volunteers, Friends’ programs are designed for every age group and interest throughout the City. Individual and community service organizations have supported the Friends throughout the years to help make library services special.

Membership with the Simi Valley Friends of the Library means making a difference in the Library services available to the community. Many of the programs that the Library offers are a direct result of the Friends. As the demand for library services, open access to books and computers, educational opportunities to support lifelong learning, public meeting rooms, and galleries for local artists continues to rise, the Friends that make the difference.

Every library needs Friends.
