Friends of the Library

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.


Friends of the Library are accepting book and media donations. Please place items in the outside book bins at each library branch or inside the library if you have a large donation. Make arrangements with library staff to meet a Friends volunteer at their book storage building at 1834 Watson Blvd, Warner Robins if your donation is exceptionally large. 

Since 2005 the Friends have donated more than $431,295.11 to the library system for the purchase of books, audio books, materials and children’s programs.
