Friends of the La Verne Library

The Friends of the La Verne Library is looking for new board members and board officers. The Friends are a non-profit group that supports library programs and services and they were a driving force behind the campaign to build the current Library. The current Friends board is a small group made up of long-time members and officers. Many are seeking to retire from their board responsibilities and as a result the group is looking for infusion of new members and new officers. The officer positions that the current board would like to fill are the following:

  • President
  • 1st Vice-President
  • 2nd Vice-President
  • Treasurer
  • Secretary

The most important of these is the Treasurer who collects library book sale proceeds, makes bank deposits, reconciles bank statements and approves and designates funds for specific library programs and services. The person interested in this position should have knowledge of basic accounting skills.

The Friends group also wants to expand the board to include more general members. This is key as a larger board ensures quorums which are necessary for conducting business and approving library funds and also allows for rotations of officers among many members instead of being limited to a handful due to a small group.

If you want to make a difference in your community please join the Friends of the La Verne Library and support our Library. Persons interested in being an officer or board member are welcome to attend the Friends monthly board meeting that is held on the second Wednesday of each month at 6:30 pm. For additional information please contact the La Verne Library at 909-596-1934.
