We invite you to join the Friends of The Urbana Free Library to participate in our activities and to support your Library.


Membership in the Friends is a bargain! With your annual membership of only $10.00 you will receive early admission to all book sales on "Members Night." Most importantly, you will gain the satisfaction of supporting a successful local 501(c)(3) organization. Proceeds from the Friends Book Shop and Friends Book Sales go to benefit The Urbana Free Library.

Join the Friends! Apply online for an Adult or Junior Membership or print a PDF brochure and follow the instructions.

The Friends meet at the Library at noon on the first Wednesday of most months and welcome members at its planning meetings. Check the Library's Event Calendar for specific dates.
