Friends of Joyce Ellington Library seek volunteers to assist with sorting and organizing donated materials, assisting with fundraising events, and supporting library activities.

The Friends of Joyce Ellington Library are wonderful volunteers that support, advocate and raise funds for a library. The Friends group supports with book sales and other activities.

The Friends are non-profit organizations dedicated to supporting services and programs in their local San Jose community branch library. Proceeds from fund-raising activities, usually book sales, are given by the Friends to the branch for purchasing various items not covered by city funding such as programs for adults and children, additions to their collection, and holiday decorations.

To join a Friends group, please complete the online form and mark the branch you are interested in.

For additional information about Joyce's Friends group, you can sign up to volunteer www.sjpl.org/volunteer.

Attend a Meeting: 1st Tuesday of the month, from 6:00-7:00 PM, at Joyce Ellington Library.
