Friends are people who believe excellent library services are important to everyone and add to the quality of life in their community.  The Friends of the Conway Public Library formed in 1998 to assist with the planning and financing of the 100th Anniversary Celebration in 2001 and consequently to assist with funding the library addition.

As a nonprofit support group, the Friends work with the library staff and the Board of Trustees to promote the goals and objectives, as well as the full range of services and resources, offered by the Conway Public Library.  We share a common goal of preserving and protecting intellectual freedom.

Join others in our community who are committed to making the Conway Public Library one of the best libraries around!
