Membership Information

Membership categories range from individual memberships of $20 to patron memberships of $100 and all donations are tax deductile. Friends has made it easy to join online. For those new to online payment, here are few helpful hints:

1.) When choosing your membership level, make sure your selection corresponds to joining as either a NEW MEMBER or RENEWING your membership.

2.) When asked to type in your email address, sign in AS A GUEST. (Don’t sign into Square where it asks for a password.)

3.) On the Page for Shipping and Credit Card Information, please complete BOTH sections as it will be the only record we have of you and we need it to mail your membership card.

4.) There is a BLANK BOX where you can write us a note and let us know if you are interested in volunteering with the Friends.

If you are not interested in paying online,  you can still join the Friends the old-fashioned way by downloading the Membership Bookmark or picking one up at the Circulation Desks. You can leave your membership application with any Shaker Library staff member.

A strong community is based, not only on the strength of its city, but also on its school system and libraries. Shaker Library is a valuable community resource that offers something for everyone in Shaker Heights. Friends of the Shaker Library is the enterprising group that helps to sustain the library. It is the go-to group when something “extra” is needed. Friends wants to add your good name to its membership list. Please join us and be part of the group that carries the Friends forward in its fourth decade of service to Shaker Library!

Membership Has Its Rewards!

Besides the support your contribution gives to the library, your Friends membership has its rewards. Please enjoy these discounts when you shop at the vendors listed below and show your Friends’ membership card.
