Friends of the Shoreline Library
The Friends of the Shoreline Library is a non-profit group whose purpose is to support the Shoreline Library through volunteering, raising funds, and sponsoring programs and services. Since 1963 they have sponsored numerous children's and adult programs and purchased items for the library that haven't been covered by the budget. Membership dues and book sales support these activities.
Members receive the following benefits:
- Friends Newsletter
- Notices of special programs and events
- Opportunities to participate in the Annual Book Sale
- Fellowship of other library Friends
- Invitation to the annual meeting and voting privileges for the Friends of the Shoreline Library
If you're interested in joining, please contact the Shoreline Library.
The Shoreline Library welcomes volunteers to help with many of the tasks it takes to run a busy branch library. There are many types of volunteer opportunities at the Shoreline Library:
- General Volunteers, work
on special projects such as mending books, adding barcodes to books, and shelf-reading
to make sure the books are in order on the shelf.

City of Shoreline Library Board
The Shoreline Library Board was formed by the City Council in the spring of 1996 to act as a liaison to the King County Library System Board of Trustees, the City Council and the citizens of Shoreline. It provides information, makes recommendations relating to the Shoreline and Richmond Beach Libraries, promotes programs and serves as an advocate for library service in the community. The Library Board consists of nine members, including two non-voting youth members, from whom a chair and vice chair are elected annually.
The Library Board meets at 6:30 p.m. on the first Thursdays of January, March, May, July, September and November. The meetings are held alternately at the Shoreline Library and the Richmond Beach Library.
