The only entrance requirement is interest.”

Friends of the Library are volunteers dedicated to the support, assistance, and promotion of our local library.
The Talent Friends have given extensive financial support to the Summer Reading and Storytime programs, provided volunteers to aid the library staff, maintained the glass display cases, sponsored free programs and Wednesday movies, and funded acquisition of additional books, magazines, and DVDs for our Talent Library.
Our successful Capital Campaign raised a third of million dollars, increasing the patron and book space in the new Talent Branch Library by over 1400 square feet.
The Friends have established a permanent endowment for Talent's public library, the "Talent Library Fund", at The Oregon Community Foundation. See below.
The Annual Members Meeting was held Thursday, April 24, 2014 at the Talent Library, 6:30pm. This was in lieu of an April Board Meeting.
Board Meetings are held at the Talent Library on the fourth Friday of the month at 1:30 pm – unless otherwise posted here. Note: there will be no regular Board Meeting in June, July & December 2014. Our November meeting will be on the third Friday, Nov 21.
