The Friends are great champions of the West Vancouver Memorial Library. We are active volunteers and supporters working together to enrich library programs, collections and services. Our efforts focus on fundraising projects and hospitality. We fund and host the Remembrance Day reception and serve refreshments at author readings and concerts.
We care about our library and proudly promote and enhance its exceptional service to our community.
New members are always welcome!
