Membership FAQs ….

The Friends of the Heritage Library host community events and programs throughout the year to help support the Lakeville public library’s efforts. We try to meet once a month for some fun, sharing of ideas and planning. We have some large activities that we have been doing for years, like our Annual Book Sale and the “OneBook, OneLakeville”, which need the help of a lot of members. But we have a variety of opportunities that can be for a single time or volunteer. We also are looking for exciting new ideas……. If you are interested in volunteering or becoming a member, please email us at

Here are some of our current activities:

*Book Packing This is getting materials organized for our annual book sale. The schedule is entirely flexible. The frequency of packing is dictated by the volume of library discards and drop-off donations. 

*Community Events …such as our book sale. Friends plan the sale, doing all the sorting, setting up, staffing and dismantling. It is a fun, high energy event needing a lot of volunteers! And the other big event is OneBook/OneLakeville. Here Friends participate in book selection, work with community leaders and organizations on fundraising and publicity, as well as plan, publicize and volunteer at events.

*Library Events Assist librarians during special Heritage Library events, doing things like greeting guests, assisting with refreshments.

*Memory Care Join Library staff and volunteers presenting special topics and crafts at Highview Hills and other Lakeville Senior centers.

*Heritage Helpers: Assist the Heritage Library staff with behind the scene activities.

*Home Delivery: Deliver library material to homebound residents in Lakeville.

*Friends Officer or Board Member Become a leader of this organization, working with Lakeville librarians to provide the planning and approval of activities and events supported by the Friends
