Friends of Avondale Libraries & Recreation

Who We Are: The Friends of Avondale Libraries and Recreation is a nonprofit, 501(c)(3) organization designed to support the City of Avondale’s libraries, recreation, parks and trails in a way that expands and improves resources and services to benefit the community.

How You Can Help: Libraries can be so much more than a good home for books -- they can be cultural centers, learning locations, sites for viewing and appreciating art, anchors for parks & green spaces, and so much more. PLUS, they have all those great books!

Perhaps you'd like to volunteer to help. Maybe you like the idea of "making a difference". Then there are those friendly folks who just like to get out and meet more friendly folks!

We look for volunteers who might want to assist us in organizing special events, such as Book Sales, cultural events, and even day-to-day operations. We also look for folks who'd like to help sponsor events or enhance the capabilities of Avondale’s Library and Recreation programs and services.
