Welcome to the Friends of our Public Libraries pages

Who are we?
Friends of the Southwest La Plata Libraries District is a citizens’ group dedicated to promoting lifelong learning in this rural community.  By securing adequate, sustainable funding for the Sunnyside Public Library and the Fort Lewis Mesa Public Library we will provide access to materials and activities that will enrich the lives of our community.

Help out with After School/Summer activities
Do you have a skill to teach? We are looking to set up skills classes for adults and children wanting to learn new skills.  Some ideas include: how to crochet, how to knit, how to sew, how to set up a resume and look for a job, how to use Word, Excel and Powerpoint, how to use adobe photoshop, among others. 
Assist the librarian to inventory books, reshelve books, clean and repair books, make photo copies, etc.
For teens: volunteer here toward your high school community service hour requirement 

Here are some things you can do to keep Sunnyside and Fort Lewis Mesa Public Libraries open:

TALK to your neighbors and spread the word
SHARE information on your favorite social media site and remember to use #swlplibrarydistrict 
DONATE to fund the libraries.
ATTEND Library District events and board meetings.
REACH OUT and let us know if you have other ideas.
