Friends, Advisory Boards & Volunteer Opportunities
The Bellevue Friends of the Library (BFOL) are interested citizens who organize to volunteer their time and efforts on behalf of the Bellevue Library, arranging programs and activities of interest to the community and providing direct financial assistance for enrichment of library services.
The Friends operate The Corner Bookshop at the Bellevue Library. Funds raised from the book shop support library programs & services at the Bellevue, Crossroads & Lake Hills libraries, including opera previews, book discussion groups, author visits, book and other programs designed to meet the needs of children, teens and adults.
Complete contact & membership information is available at the Bellevue Friends of the Library website.
Due to construction on the Bellevue Library parking garage, for the 2011-2012 season, the group will meet at the Bellettini, 1115 108th Avenue NE, Bellevue WA 98004.
See www.thebellettini.com for directions.
