Friends of the Cambria Library

The Friends of the Cambria Library (FOCL) is an all-volunteer non-profit organization created to serve our community’s library and its programs and services. Our primary activity is to raise funds for the Cambria Library and to support the library’s efforts to offer programs and services of benefit to our community. FOCL operates independently from the Cambria Library with mutual recognition that a stable, positive relationship between the two organizations benefits library staff, patrons, and FOCL members.


FOCL Membership is open to all individuals who wish to support FOCL’s mission and purpose. Members participate in the governance of the organization and each member has a vote in duly called regular meetings. FOCL Members may volunteer their time and energy in fundraising activities (primarily book sales) and in program support as they help promote the importance of reading and an enthusiasm for books. By becoming a Member of the Friends of the Cambria Library, you support our community’s library and help guarantee it continues to be a vibrant part of Cambria!
