About the Friends
The Friends of the Guntersville Public Library is a not-for-profit membership organization for people interested in books and libraries. Our purpose is to stimulate interest in the Library, purchase library materials, and support programs and events hosted by the Guntersville Public Library.
Since its inception over forty years ago, Friends of the Guntersville Public Library has donated over $500,000 to the Library. We are able to accomplish many of our goals by distributing funds raised from the annual book sale, the Bookstore, and from membership dues.
Join the Friends and enjoy these perks:
- The company of books and book lovers
- The Friends newsletter, Pages from Friends, containing library news, events, and services
- Early shopping at the annual book sale
- Dues from memberships fund programs buy books, DVDs, and other library materials and equipment
- Discover opportunities to volunteer.
Friends of the Library Bookstore
The Friends Bookstore is a vital source of funding. It is operated entirely by volunteers and all revenue goes to support the library.
- books of all kinds, including children’s books
- movies, audiobooks, and music
- magazines and comics
Donate your gently used items to the Friends Bookstore! Simply bring your items to the Guntersville Public Library. All donations are tax deductible.
