You can "be a friend" by joining a Friends of the Library group. These organizations support Forsyth County Public Library branches by sponsoring special events, serving as volunteers in their neighborhood library, and by raising community awareness of the importance of libraries. Any individual may join the Friends.

Friends of the Library associations throughout the county represent communities committed to supporting the Library’s mission of service excellence. Whether or not you use the Library and value it as a center of knowledge and exploration, becoming a Friend is a way of investing in Forsyth County’s future.

Book Sales

Friends of the Library conduct regular book sales all year long, offering a wide variety of materials from a wide variety of donors, including books, videos, and CDs. Many books are in gift-giving condition, and prices are bargains, too. Friends may preview books for their branch's book sale before it is opened to the general public. Fall book sale information coming soon.

Programs for Adults

Friends of the Library also organize socials and book clubs throughout the year.
