A library outranks any other one thing a community can do to benefit its people. It is a never failing spring in the desert.” 

- Andrew Carnegie

HCFOL 2016 Annual Meeting

Please plan to attend the 2016 Annual Meeting of the Harris County Friends of the Library.  It will be held on Friday, March 4 April 1 at 10:00 am. The location is the Harris County Library’s Central Office, 9220 Kirby Dr. Suite 100, Houston, TX 77054.

On that Friday, there will be a short business meeting, followed by a State of the Library report by Edward Melton, Library Director. Linda Stevens will also give a presentation on the Summer Reading Program. There will be time for discussion about fundraising, Friends of the Library memberships, and other items of general interest so please bring ideas!  

HCFOL benefits all 26 branches.  I encourage you to participate and support the group and its activities as we work together to enrich our library programming.

Susan Greer, President

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.
