The Friends of the Kings County Library is a member-supported nonprofit organization that advocates, fundraises, and provides critical support for the Kings County Library and related literary and educational programs. Formed in 1984, our purpose is to provide the community with opportunities to invest in the success of the Library as well as literary and education communities by donating funds or by donating time through volunteering. We raise money and we raise our voices to ensure a first-class public library for Kings County.
Friends of the Library support the library by:
- Holding bi-annual book sales
- Sponsoring the Summer Reading Program for children, teens, and adults
- Helping recruit volunteers
From our enthusiastic members to our extraordinary volunteers, from our generous donor base to the thousands of people who benefit from the programs we provide and support, we are what our name implies: a collection of committed, caring individuals who share a common vision of a superior free public library accessible by all.
The Friends of the Kings County Library meet on the second Thursday of each month at 1:00 p.m. at the Hanford Cantina.
