The Friends of the Bay County Libraries is a volunteer organization that raises money and helps with the enhancement of library operations. Membership is comprised of people from throughout Bay County who are passionate about their libraries. The Friends are governed by a Board of Directors, who are elected annually. The current President is John Van Looy, who can be reached at (989) 892-9726. If you are interested in joining, registration envelopes are available at any of the library branches. You may also print out this form, fill it out and mail it, along with a check, to our administrative office at the Alice & Jack Wirt Public Library, 500 Center Avenue, Bay City, MI 48708.
