Friends of the Library


Friends of the Cochrane Public Library
Who Are We?

We are a group of library volunteers who support your community library through fundraising events such as our annual “Beyond Words” book sale (typically run in June of every year). We are always looking to welcome new members! If you love reading and would love to support your library by joining us, please leave your details at the circulation desk, or email us at
In the past year we have raised money to purchase a self check-out kiosk; to revamp the children’s area with a beautiful mural, trains, and a STEAM work space; to purchase large floor games; and to begin the development of a Learning Lab.

The monthly meeting, plus two or three hours per month volunteering, is all that is needed. If you would like to support the Cochrane Public Library through our group, please leave your information at the circulation desk or email us at

"BEYOND WORDS" Annual Book Sale
The Friends of the Cochrane Public Library hosts this very popular sale of gently used books, CD's, DVD's and pictures. Donations are accepted throughout the year and may be dropped off in the donation bin located in the foyer of the library.  Donations accepted include books, CD's, DVD’s and pictures (paintings, prints, etc.)   We are sorry but encyclopedias, computer books, text books and magazines cannot be accepted.
