Friends of Vermilion Public Library

Friends of Vermilion Public Library

The Friends of the Vermilion Public Library is a dedicated group of volunteers who support the library. Historically, the friends have raised and dispersed over $60,000 to the benefit of the library.

If you see a piece of equipment, new technology or something new at the library there is a good chance that the friends made that possible. The friends are primarily concerned with raising funds, advocacy, and volunteer work. The only current fundraiser for the Friends is a GAIN Charity Casino held in Camrose. If you are interested in assisting the Friends in meeting their goals please contact the library manager.
