The Friends of The UFL Need Your Help!

Do you have a green thumb and might you be looking for a volunteer opportunity?  The Friends are looking for enthusiastic volunteers to help with the library gardens.

The Friends support your library in many ways.  They organize and raise money through their used book sales and support the library’s summer reading programs.  The Friends other helpful projects fall in the “extra touches” category, such as the development and maintenance of the signature flower boxes and landscaping around the library. 

Garden volunteers:

  • Help with the maintenance, watering, and weeding of the library garden 
  • Commit to one hour, once per week 
  • Need not be a member of the Friends of the Library

If you’re interested in contributing volunteer hours to your library, contact Simon at 217-493-3670.  The Friends are looking forward to hearing from you!
