Friends of the Moraga Library

The Friends of the Moraga Library are dedicated to the concept of service as well as financial support of the Moraga Library. The Friends have a commitment to provide both cultural and educational programs for our community. Income from our used book sales and membership fees help us buy books, recorded books, videos, CDs, DVDs, magazines, equipment and supplies for the Library, not covered in the County budget. The Friends also partially fund the extended hours the Library is open and have been responsible for the refurbishing of furniture and carpets.

Throughout the year the Moraga Library, funded by the Friends, presents a lecture series for adults in the community, programs for teens and outstanding children's programs.

In addition, the Friends of the Moraga Library support the Library through a program in which volunteers provide assistance in shelving books, working on exhibits, etc. The Friends and Library Staff welcomes your family's participation in these programs that benefit the community.
