FRIENDS OF THE KILLALOE LIBRARY

The Friends of the Killaloe and District Library is a non profit, charitable organization (registration#85354 2330 RR0001) and designated as a Public Foundation dedicated to promoting the cause of the Library. Formed in 1999, the Friends are a small group that assists the library in maintaining its high profile as a provider of educational, research and enjoyment material through fund raising efforts and advocacy.

A Friend group can raise funds for special equipment and facilitate new programs. They are a “grass root” association that works and co-operates with library boards and also with library administration.

The Friends help to fund programs which might not be formally covered in the libraries operation budget.
