The Friends

The Friends of the Collierville Burch Library is a nonprofit group whose purpose is to support the Library through volunteerism, fund raising and sponsorship of programs and services. Friends membership offers you the opportunity to share thoughts, donate your time or lend your talent. New members are always welcome.

Monthly Meeting

The Friends of the Collierville Burch Library meet at 1:00 pm the first Wednesday of each month in the Halle Room of the Collierville Burch Library. Meetings generally last about an hour. We had a brief meeting during the book sale set-up on April 2nd .  We still need at least one or two people to volunteer to bring refreshments for the May  7th meeting.  Please call or email Carole Cornell if you can help (carole.cornell@gmail.com, or phone 832-5319.  Some small changes for the bookstore include a new bulletin board for staff and customer book recommendations and so on as well as a shelf dedicated to new and/or popular books.  Thank you to all who continue to help make our book store such a nice place to be!

For directions, call us or visit google maps.
