Friends Annual Book Sale Event Surpasses $10,000 Goal!
Special thanks to those who do- nated books and materials over the past year for the 2018 Friends Book Sale event held over February 2, 3, and 4 at the Hagen Ranch Road Branch. More than 1,200 patrons attend- ed, donating more than $10,000 for slightly used books, CDs, and DVDs. The funds will be used for various PBC Library events for seniors, adults, teens and children. More than 100 events are presented throughout the system’s 17 branches each month. Used materials can be donated at all li- brary branches throughout the year. Children's items and large print books are particularly needed.

The Friends of the Palm Beach County Library serves to create an association of people interested in books and libraries. We serve to focus public attention on library services, facilities and needs. Raising funds for scholarships and special projects and to stimulate gifts to the collection, endowments and bequests.
We endeavor to assist in the development of programs for the extension and improvement of library services and resources to adequately serve the needs of the population of the Palm Beach County Public Library System.
Finally, we seek to advocate on the library's behalf in order to inform elected officials, as well as the public, about the services that the library provides to our community and their continued need for funding.
