They should help your library reach out to under-served groups; provide programming that makes the library relevant to all; engage your community in an awareness of your services; and let you funders know that the Library is most effective when it is fully funded.

    An excellent primer for librarians who are hoping to start a Friends group, find better ways to work with an existing group, or combine a group with a Foundation. For Friends, it offers a wide range of resources, including MOUs, guides to increasing membership, and fundraising ideas from all over the country. An added bonus is the fact that this book addresses not only Friends for public libraries, but their role in academic libraries, as well.

    So it took me forever to flip through this book. My library struggles with fundraising and currently does not have a friends group. Since I started it has been my goal to start up a FG, however it's been close to 4 years and no such luck. This book had some good tips on starting up a Friends Group, but overall it felt like it would be better information for bigger libraries in a larger community than mine.

    All examples and content is American in focus. Lightweight considering the topic; was hoping for more.

    I think that this is a worthwhile read for anyone that is involved with a library friends group. It would also be an excellent primer for someone tat is interested in creating a friends group at their institution, regardless of type.
