Supporting the library system is
easy! Each time you use our web site, borrow an item, visit one of our
locations, attend a program or search for information in one of our
databases, you are showing your support. Other opportunities are available
through the Friends of the LeRoy Collins Leon County Public Library,
Volunteer LEON, and Literacy Volunteers of Leon County.
