Perhaps no place in any community is so totally democratic as the town library. The only entrance requirement is interest.

National Library Week

National Library Week (April 12 - 18) is a time to celebrate the contributions of our nation's libraries and to promote library use and support.  It is also time to thank all of our local branch Friends of the Library. They are  invaluable in the help and support they provide for our branch libraries.  They raise money, sponsor programs, increase public awareness about our libraries and much more all year round. And they  are all volunteers!  The Harris County Friends of the Library thanks them for their dedication. 


Harris County Friends of the Library are a group that is active in providing funds for programming and materials for the Harris County Public Library. The Friends are an active volunteer group that raises money for the library through books sales, volunteer-sponsored programs, Friends memberships and sales of library t-shirts and other memorabilia. These monies provide Harris County Public Library assistance with supplies and other costs for programming, library materials, and a variety of other library needs.

Contact the Librarian at your nearest Branch Library for details.
