Meeting Future Library Challenges

Friends Need Friends

The work of the Freedom Friends is grounded in friendship. This creates a culture of collaboration, engagement and connectivity and ensures that our work goes forward in an atmosphere of caring and encouragement. Among the Friends everyone’s ideas and opinions matter, and there are involvement opportunities for all. We share our interests and concerns with one another and take great pleasure in our camaraderie, which in turn, energizes our efforts.
