Friends of Innerpeffray Library

Friends of Innerpeffray Library postponed AGM took place on Wednesday 19th August 2020 at 7pm via the online platform Zoom. Details below, Papers can be downloaded here.

The Friends of Innerpeffray Library is a charity constituted separately from Innerpeffray Library under Scottish Charity No. SC 023545. It was founded in 1993 with CRIS 21975/20.

What we do

FOIL – the Friends of Innerpeffray Library –was founded with the aim of generating funds to be used for the preservation of the fabric of the Library and for the books themselves. It does so by organising an annual programme of events, at the centre of which is a series of monthly talks on a wide variety of topics. The speakers might typically be authors, historians, artists or musicians sharing first-hand experience of their specialist subjects. In addition to the talks FOIL also participates in local activities such as the Drummond Castle Charity Fete and farmers’ markets – raising awareness of the Library as well as funds. FOIL also offers support in many practical ways at Library events and works closely with the Keeper of Books and the Governors for the greater good of Innerpeffray Library.

We are currently updating the membership information. If you have not received our Appeal letter from the Convenor by 10th August, please email or call Lara at the Library and let us know.
