More About Us
The Friends of PCPL is a non-profit 501(c) 3 organization founded in 1969 to raise funds for special and innovative library programs, equipment and services, which are not part of the normal annual budget. We accomplish this by raising funds through the sale of books, memberships, and grants. We have community book sales at our book barn. We also sell books online year round and at retail spaces in 15 libraries. The Friends has a Managing Director who oversees a large group of dedicated volunteers, some of whom have been involved for more than twenty-five years!
The Friends have provided over $1million to The Pima County Public Library, making the acquisition and /or sponsorship of the following:
•Summer Reading Program
•Tucson Writer’s Project
•Southwest Literature Project
•Technology for Branches
•Vehicles for outreach and servicing the branches
and hundreds of smaller and one-time projects.
