Friends of the Florissant Library
The Friends of the Florissant Library is a group of dedicated volunteers who support the Florissant Library and the District. They volunteer at library programs, raise money through book sales, provide books and other materials and are available whenever help is needed. They sponsor a children’s Winter Fun Day at the library every February and hold a Book, Bake and Plant Sale every June. The Friends meet at the Florissant Library at 1:30 p.m. quarterly beginning in January. If you are interested in being part of this community group, please call the Florissant Library at 748-3939 for more information.
Be a Volunteer
The Rampart Library District is a great place to volunteer on a regular basis, or for special events such as the Summer Book Sale. Volunteers might be tasked with facing books, dusting, deleting books, or any number of tasks needed when you’re here. Volunteers are subject to a background check and do need to commit to a regular schedule of attendance.
