  • Summer Reading Programs for all ages
  • Adult Literacy Program
  • Annual Author Fair
  • El Segundo History Committee
  • Genealogy and local history services
  • Purchase of special books and equipment for the Library
  • Educational scholarships for High School students

Join us!

Friends of the Library volunteers undertake fundraising and "Friend-raising" activities throughout the year to raise awareness and support the Library. 

Here's what we do:

  • Participate in community events to promote the Library

Volunteers are needed and are welcome. Become a member to get started.
