Friends Membership

The Friends of the Heritage Library are active in our mission of ‘Bringing people to the library and the library to the people’.  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…….

How I Can Get Involved?

The Friends of the Heritage Library host community events and programs throughout the year to raise awareness and raise money to help support the library efforts. If you are interested in volunteering or becoming a member, please email us at

Book Packing

This is getting materials organized for our annual book sale. The schedule is entirely flexible.   Typically we’ll try to have two volunteers per month who will, but it can be done solo.   The frequency of packing is dictated by the volume of library discards and drop-off donations.  Volunteers will often coordinate between themselves or our book packing coordinator so that two people could be packing together and help each other out.  The packing is done in a back storage room at the library and involves unshelving books from mobile carts or a fixed set of shelving, organizing them, and then storing the books in cardboard boxes.
