Friends of the Libraries

Are you interested in becoming a Friend of your library?

The Friends of the Marlborough District Libraries are a group of people who love libraries! They support libraries, run educational and entertaining events, fund raise and advocate for them.

It's a great way to get involved, support your library, meet new people and have fun at the same time. Membership continues to grow and new members are welcome at any time. The Friends’ brochure with membership application form is available at both the Blenheim and Picton libraries or print off the form below.
