Library benchThe Friends of Gilmer Public Library is an independent organization that works to help support the library. They serve as a fundraising arm for GPL and represent the library at community events.
The Friends mission is to raise money and public awareness in the community to support the services and programs of the library.  As a non-profit, 501c3 organization, however, it is a legally distinct entity and is not a part of the library.
New members are always welcome, and there are no membership dues.
Friends of Gilmer Public Library, Inc. usually meets the 3rd Wednesday of every month in the library board room.  For more information, call 304-462-5653 or email
