Friends of the Library

Who Are The Friends?

The Friends of the Upland Public Library is a nonprofit 501(c)3 organization, comprised of dedicated citizens who support their library with time, talent, funds and volunteer services. The success of the Upland Public Library could not be achieved without the support of the Friends.

The Friends raise funds by selling books at the Book Seller throughout the year. The revenues from this activity, as well as funds from membership dues, are all donated to the Upland Library for equipment, library materials, and library programs.

The benefits of membership in the Friends of the Upland Library include: incomparable camaraderie, special library events, and civic pride in support of your local library!


The Friends of the Upland Library accept donations of gently used books and DVDs. Donations are accepted during open hours.
