Friends of the Library
The Lynchburg Public Library remains a dynamic asset and resource enriching the lives of patrons of all ages through its many programs and services. Early literacy and lifelong learning are both part of the Library’s mission. We, the Friends of the Lynchburg Public Library, need your help in providing the support required to continue funding programs and services for both youth and adults.
We ask for your support because the role of the Library is about so much more than what first comes to mind. Its dedicated staff educates our children through storytimes, reading programs, and STEAM activities. Staff members help children find that one special book, which may serve as that child’s greatest inspiration.
Many resources are available for adults, too. Did you know that the Library can help someone learn a foreign language? Or provide access to a public law library? Or that the Library provides access to computers for those who do not have them?
During the past year, 18,488 people attended 538 programs. The Friends of the Lynchburg Public Library are the major funding source for Library programs. Your donations are critically needed to continue our support for these and other Library programs.
Current programs include:
- Youth and Adult Summer Reading Programs
- Summer Lunch at the Library for all youth
- 1,000 Books Before Kindergarten
- STEAM classes/activities
- Babygarten and storytimes
- Teen Tuesday
- Part-time Volunteer Coordinator
- Adult lectures, book groups, and craft programs
The Friends of the Lynchburg Public Library are dedicated to continue supporting these vital programs, and we need your help to do so. Please give as generously as you can with your tax-deductible Annual Gift to the Friends of the Lynchburg Public Library.
