About us

The Friends of Strathcona Library Society exists to support the Strathcona County Library by promoting its service to the community, advocating on its behalf and raising additional funds for specific library needs, such as collections, programs and equipment.

The Society was incorporated under the Alberta Societies Act in 1993. It is also registered as a charity (in the public foundation category) with the Canada Revenue Agency and with the AGLC (Alberta Gaming, Liquor and Cannabis).

The Friends is governed by a board of volunteers of wide-ranging interests and backgrounds. The board is comprised of up to 15 directors, including the past president, president, vice president, treasurer, secretary and a representative of the Library Board. All board members, except the representative of the Library Board, must be members of the Society.

If you are a member of the Society and are interested helping to manage the general affairs of the Society by joining the board, please contact us.
