How to Join the Friends of QPL

Joining a Friends of QPL group is easy. Those interested in learning more about the groups should complete the following steps:

  1. Speak with Volunteer Services.  You are encouraged to contact the Office of Volunteer Services and speak with a team member about joining an existing Friends group.  We can provide detailed information about the purpose, activities and past accomplishments of the Friends; share the benefits of becoming a Friends volunteer; and answer general questions.
     
  2. Complete the Membership Profile.  After speaking with us, you are required to complete a Membership Profile.  The profile gathers pertinent information to offer greater insights regarding your motivations to join as well as identifying personal/ professional skills and experience that can support the Friends.
