Join the Friends Board 

We’re looking for a few good Friends to join our volunteer Board for the 2025 term. The Board oversees the operation of our organization, including our quarterly Book Sales, the Lobby Shop, and other fundraising efforts. If you’re a Library lover looking for a great way to give back to your community, join us!

  • Attend monthly Board meetings held on the 3rd Wednesday of each month from 7-9pm
  • Lead or volunteer with one of our committees

What’s in it for you? 

  • Have fun while helping your community in a meaningful way – the work of our all volunteer organization generates an average donation of $75,000 a year to fund programs at the Mountain View Public Library 
  • Volunteering with a nonprofit looks great on your resume or LinkedIn profile
