The Friends of RJCL raise funds for library programs and equipment, and provide volunteer support for programs and events. We have been actively supporting our community library since its founding in 1998. The Friends of the Red Jacket Community Library is a tax-exempt 501(c)3 organization.


Meetings are usually the third Tuesday of the month at 7 p.m. in the library.  Check the events calendar for up-to-date information each month.





Benefits of Membership

The Friends of the Red Jacket Community Library welcome all members of the community to the join us. Membership carries several benefits.

The two-day Friends-only preview is held prior to the sale opening to the public.
