Friends of the Library

Friends of the Library

The Friends of Tompkins County Public Library, founded in 1946, is a not-for-profit membership organization for people interested in books and libraries. Our purpose is to stimulate public interest in the library, purchase library materials, and support other cultural and educational programs in Tompkins County.  We are able to accomplish many of our goals by the distribution of funds raised during our twice-yearly book sales.
