Friends of Morley Library

Friends of Morley Library

The Friends of Morley Library are a group of volunteers dedicated to helping make the Library the best it can be.  The Friends have conducted fundraising activities to benefit the Library, as well as focusing public attention on the Library services, facilities, and needs.  In addition to the ever-popular Book Sales in the Bookcellar, the Friends also run an ongoing Book Sale in the Library’s lobby, updated regularly.  Each year the Friends raise thousands of dollars, funding many of your favorite activities at Morley Library. 

Who Are The Friends?

The purpose of the Friends of Morley Library is to promote closer relations between Morley Library and the citizens of Painesville and Lake County; to heighten the awareness of the public to the programs of the library; and to raise funds to support and supplement the library’s community services. 

The Friends are community volunteers dedicated to assist in the implementation of Morley Library’s mission and goals.

  • Support for the Library throughout the community.
