The Friends are a 100% volunteer organization with a goal to raise $60,000 before the new library opens in Lakewood Ranch. Our fundraising will provide programs and services for all patrons, as well as professional development for library staff. Our focus is to purchase library collections, furniture, technology/equipment, literacy gardens, and signage. Expanding beyond the typical, we expect to be able to fund the six literacy areas that reflect exceptional libraries: basic literacy; cultural literacy; civic literacy; business and financial literacy; life skills literacy and educating the public for 21st century literacy. We do not receive any state or federal funding, Thank you for supporting the Friends! Below are several ways you can give a gift.
