SUPPORT Lifelong Learning & Reading

Friends of the Library

The Friends of the Library is a non-profit, volunteer organization that supports the branches of the Lexington County Public Library System. Friends operate with a self-elected board of directors, and volunteer their time, energy, and ideas to advocate and provide support for the Library.  Through membership dues, book sales, and special fund-raising activities, the Friends provide funding for non-budgeted library projects and programs. Each branch is supported by its own local Friends group. For information on joining, please visit your nearest branch.

Gifts to the Lexington County Public Library help us meet our mission to provide quality materials and services to our community. Through the generosity of individuals and businesses we are able to offer additional items and reading materials for the library collection, increase our ability to meet the technology needs of our community, offer more program opportunities for both children and adults to foster lifelong learning, and improve spaces within our branches. Monetary gifts may be given in honor or in memory of an individual. With these special gifts, the donor has the option of placing a bookplate within the purchase to signify the donation. For information on making a donation to the Library please contact your local branch.
