Friends of Medway Libraries

Friends of Medway Libraries was formed in 2006 to raise the profile of libraries in Medway. The group meets socially, once a month.

What do the Friends do

The Friends are an independent group of volunteers who support and promote Medway Libraries through various activities, such as:

  • raising the profile of the library service in the community
  • encouraging the use of libraries
  • helping with library events including author talks and baby bounce and rhyme
  • running promotion stands at school fetes, shopping centres and other public places
  • assisting with customer satisfaction surveys
  • helping with leaflet drops
  • supporting readers' groups
  • running knitting for charity groups in libraries
  • fundraising
  • advocacy.

Friends of Medway Libraries function independently of the Medway Libraries, with their own constitution, funds and objectives, working closely with library staff.
