Friends of the Library Month

October is Friends of the Library Month in Citrus County.

The work of the Friends of the Library promotes the fact that our libraries are a cornerstone of community education, providing opportunities for everyone to engage in the joy of life-long learning and connect with the thoughts and ideas of the world.

The Friends, the foundation of community support for the Citrus County Library System, understand the critical importance of well-funded libraries and advocate to ensure that our libraries get the resources needed to provide a wide variety of services to all ages.

The Friends provide outstanding fundraising assistance to enhance our libraries, and they've donated the astounding amount of over $700,000 since 2001. The gift of their time and commitment to the library sets an example for how volunteerism leads to positive civic engagement and the betterment of our community.

The Citrus County Board of County Commissioners has proclaimed that October 2011 is Friends of the Library month in Citrus County.

This October, consider joining the Friends of the Library. Each of our five libraries has their own friends group, and together the Friends of the Library work to make libraries and their community better.

Become part of a fun group that makes a real difference. You can download an application form, fill it out, and bring it into your local library today.
