ABOUT 
FRIENDS OF THE MONETA SMITH MOUNTAIN LAKE LIBRARY

The Friends of the Moneta/SML Library was formed in 1998 as a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit Corporation. According to our by-laws, the purpose of our volunteer group shall be to promote the goals and needs of the Moneta/SML Library, a part of the Bedford Public Library System, and to insure that the benefits of said library be enjoyed by residents of the Moneta and Smith Mountain Lake communities and surrounding areas.
 
Our objective is to acquire funds through membership fees and fund raising efforts for the purpose of promoting the goals of the library and enhancements to benefit the library and its patrons.

WELCOME FROM THE LIBRARY AND THE FRIENDS OF THE MONETA/SML LIBRARY!

The SMAC Expo was held at Trinity Ecumenical on Saturday, May 11th. We had a good response and outreach. A very interesting event.
