The Friends has raised over $70,000 during the past six years and monies have gone towards the Friends' "Books for Babies" program, books for ESL learning for new immigrants, materials for the Teen Collection, book club sets for the Reader's Club and materials for children's and literacy programs. The Friends advocate for library facilities, including a new branch for Coquitlam's City Centre area and for the library's travelling Book Mobile.

The Friends meet once per month, except in the summer and December.Meetings are held on the secondSaturday of the month at 10:15 the board room of the Poirier Branch. Membership in the Friends of the Coquitlam Public Library costs $5 for individual and $100 for corporate.
