Friends of the Library

History, Mission, and Membership

History

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 and have donated substantially to the North Branch Library expansion. Working with County Commissioners and Library Administration, the Friends provide strong leadership in bringing Tom Green County residents exceptional library services.

 

Monthly Book Sale

One of our most popular projects is the monthly, first-Saturday book sale, held in our headquarters at Stephens Central. These sales raise 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.
