Learn more about becoming a member of the board of the Friends of the Library!

The Board of the Friends of the Library of the Chathams currently has two open positions for residents of Chatham Township.  The Friends of the Library is a non-profit organization dedicated to supporting programming and activities at our library.  This includes youth and adult programs along with running the annual Book Sale.  If interested in volunteering to join a fun, book-loving group please email for more information.


The Friends of the Library is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization run by volunteers.  Friends are residents of The Chathams who are advocates of the library.  After expenses, 100% of the money raised goes back into the library to help finance materials, services, programs, and improvements that are not covered in the regular library budget.
