Friends of the Tom Green Library System

Would you like to be our Friend? Everyone's a friend of the library, but why not formalize the relationship? If you value books and reading, you're invited to join us in our endeavors. 

Organized in 1979, Friends of the Tom Green County Library, Inc. was established to promote use of the Library and its many services through donations and various projects. The Friends were a motivating force behind the construction of Angelo West Branch Library. Working with County Commissioners and Library Administration, the Friends provide strong leadership in bringing Tom Green County residents exceptional library services.
One of our most popular projects is the annual book sale. This event raises thousands of dollars for the library each year. Additionally, our volunteers manage and operate a book store in Stephens Central.

Books are also sold online through Abe Books. Proceeds are used to strengthen the library collection and sponsor programs and activities that enhance use of the Library and encourage reading.

We invite your support. The cost is little; the rewards immense. Membership entitles you to a subscription to our e-mail newsletter and advance notice of activities and book sales. Fees are as follows:

Individual: $10.00 a year
Family: $25.00 a year
Individual Lifetime: $150.00
Family Lifetime: $300.00

Becoming a Friend is easy. Just fill out the application (available at all libraries) and mail with payment to:
P.O. Box 60421 San Angelo, TX  76906

For more information on membership or volunteer opportunities, contact the Friends at tgcfol@yahoo.com or stop by the book store at Stephens Central to talk with a Friend.
