Friends of the Fort Smith Public Library
Who are the Friends of the Library?
The Friends of the Library is a non-profit organization dedicated to assisting the Fort Smith Public Library in its numerous
projects and programs. Every year, the Friends of the Library sponsor the library's two annual Used Book Sales (fiction -- the first week-end in May; nonfiction -- the last week-end in August) and National Library Week activities each April. These very special Friends provide money for special projects throughout the year from membership dues and proceeds from the annual Used Book Sale and gift shop.
The Friends of the Library gift shop and used book store, Between the Pages, carries great gift items whether you need
something for that special teacher or a new baby. They have wonderful handmade items from local artists from birdhouses to baby
blankets. Stop by next time you need a gift for a special occasion...or a good book to have for your own. In addition to gifts,
you can find many quality used books. Come check out our collection...for sale.
The Friends Need You
The Friends of the Library Gift Shop, Between the Pages, is looking for volunteers. The Gift Shop, a year-round fundraising
effort for the Friends, has used and new books and inexpensive gift items. The store is open from 12:30 - 4:30 weekdays in the
Main Library. Volunteers need no prior retail experience. Work once a month or once a week — whatever your schedule will allow.
Enjoy the wonderful atmosphere in the library building and help the Friends at the same time!
