Support Your Library Community

The Friends of the Cos Cob Library is a volunteer organization dedicated to encouraging and assisting the work of the Cos Cob Branch of the Greenwich Library by providing information to the community, by sponsoring programs and by coordinating the volunteer activities of the Cos Cob Library.

The Friends reach out to children, students, teachers, and adults to nurture a lifelong love of reading and to introduce the vast print and non-print resources of the Library.

The Friends membership dollars help defray expenses outside the Library's budget with gifts of equipment, extra supplies and by sponsoring:

  • Adults' Programs (including book discussion groups, author presentations and genealogy workshops)
  • Educational & Computer Workshops
  • Cultural Programs
  • Entertainment Programs
  • Art Exhibits
  • Craft Activities
  • Theme Events
  • Holiday Parties
  • Social Events
  • Concerts
  • Children's/Young Adult Programs
  • Book Sales

Membership in The Friends shows support for the Library and offers an opportunity for community service and involvement when Friends volunteer: hosting programs and exhibits; shelf reading; and assisting with event hospitality.

At their convenience, Volunteers check in with the Librarian and are assigned one or more shelves to put in numerical or alphabetical order. No specific schedule or required number of hours is required, but there are almost always shelves needing attention.

Program Assistance

One or more Volunteers assist a day or evening program for children or adults, including preparing and setting up any hospitality. This requires arriving about 30 minutes before scheduled start time.
