FOL is accepting book and media donations. Our volunteers are emptying the outside book collection bins at each library on a regular basis. For large donations (too many books to go in the bins) please call the library to make arrangements to meet an FOL volunteer at our book storage building located on 1834 Watson Blvd, next to the old Stratto Cleaners.

Remember that the libraries are not taking inside book donations.  Please call to make arrangements for large donations or drop your donations in the red FOL book donation drops.

Friends of the Library are concerned citizens who share the belief that a strong public library is a valuable intellectual, cultural, educational and recreational resource in the community. Through their volunteer activities and fund raising efforts, Friends assist the Library in developing programs to meet community needs.

Since 2005 the Friends have donated more than $409,795.11 to the library system for the purchase of books, audio books, materials and children’s programs.

Support the Houston County Public Library system by:

• Donating gently used books at any Houston library
• Buying used books & media from the Lobby Sales at each library branch
• Volunteering to work at the annual Old Book Sale.
Attending the annual Friends of the Library Old Book Sale!
