Supporting the Friends Board as an accountant
The Friends board needs an accountant that can take over from a gentleman that has been on the board and their accountant for over 20 years! We have a few checks cut during the month and we have a 5 hour a week employee that does our Quickbooks. We just need an accountant to make sure we are reporting correctly to the board each month.
The board meets on the 2nd Thursday of the month from 4:00 to 6:00 PM. Currently, we are meeting via zoom.
No additional volunteer opportunities at this time.
About Executive Director

The mission of the Peninsula Friends of the Library is to raise funds to support the Palos Verdes Library District and to build community awareness and enthusiasm for PVLD services, programs, and needs.
The Peninsula Friends of the Library was organized in 1961 as an all-volunteer, non-profit entity whose mission was to enhance the services and programs of the District.
The Friends became more important when in 1978, Proposition 13 cut the Library budget by 65% and the staff by 50%. The Friends stepped up to provide the necessary funds eliminated by Prop 13, and we have been active ever since.
Today the Friends provide over $400,000 annually to PVLD and the endowment has grown to over $1.5 million. The Friends are now an integral component of PVLD-supporting book sales, special events, volunteers, funding of the Teen Annex, and providing 5% of the Library’s budget-all to strengthen PVLD and Palos Verdes Peninsula Community.
