Friends Of The Library
Friends of the Friona Public Library are very active in helping to provide excellence in working with our patrons and our partners in the community. The Friends Centennial Endowment Fund, established in 2006-2008, is being managed by Amarillo Area Foundation.
Friends of the Friona Public Library was organized in 1968 as a 501(c)3 non-profit.
Friends Executive Committee meets monthly on the second Thursday at 4:30 p.m. at the library except during the summer. Annual membership meeting is held in April each year.
Spring and Fall newsletters are published each year encouraging Friends membership and volunteerism and reporting on the activities of the organization. To sign up for our new electronic newsletter send your email address to: firstname.lastname@example.org
