Friends of the Library

Our mission is to support the Brandon Township Public Library through special activities, fundraising, and the acquisition of library materials.

Friends of the LibrarySome members support the Friends simply by making cash contributions, while others become more involved by donating their time. Funds raised from contributions, used book sales, and events sponsored by the Friends of Brandon Library are used to provide the extras that make our Library a great asset to our community. A strong and healthy Library enhances the community we live in. Why not join today? To join, stop by the customer service counter or call 248-627-1460 and leave your name and contact information. A Friends member will contact you.

HOW CAN YOU HELP?

  • Become a member and bring a friend along
  • Help in the FOL Bookstore
  • Advocate for the library at local community events
  • Donate gently used or new books,  audio books, DVDs, or music CDs
  • Make financial donations or gifts in memory of or to honor a loved one

We are hoping that an influx of your book donations will replenish our shelves. Please think of us before discarding your books or audiovisual items. Books of all subjects and all ages are gratefully accepted. Thank you for your donations and for your patronage. We look forward to meeting you!
