The Friends of the Library have sponsored projects and expenditures, which extend beyond the command of the normal Library budget, for the past 60 years. We build community interest, pride, and financial support for our local Library programs.

The Friends continue to:

  • Acquaint the community with the Leon County Public Library System and stimulate use of its many resources
  • Improve and expand the services provided
  • Raise money for and encourage gifts to the Library of special or otherwise unaffordable books, programs or equipment
  • Provide volunteers to enhance the services provided by the Library staff
  • Educate the community on the role a good Library plays in the community
  • Provide interesting and informative programs for Library patrons of all ages.
