Friends of the Pasco County Library System, Inc. is a not-for-profit organization of people who share a belief that a strong public library is essential for a thriving community. They work together to enrich the resources of the Library for the benefit of all Pasco citizens through fundraising, volunteering, and advocacy efforts.
The Friends organization makes many of the cultural, art, music, storytime, summer reading, and technology programs of the Pasco Library System possible by providing funding not met through traditional county support.
The Friends organization fosters public interest in the Library. Strong grassroots support of our public library is essential for continued county, state, and federal funding.
Becoming a Friend Of The Library is your best way to show that the public library is important to you, your family and your community.
