Friends’ Groups

Friends' groups support the public library network in Poole – currently we  have groups at Canford Cliffs and Canford Heath libraries. We welcome people from all parts of the community who share an interest in books and libraries, and who want to promote the library service within the community.  These groups also help the library service by fundraising to buy books, equipment and furniture. If you would like to join a group, please contact your local library.
