Volunteering, Fundraising, and Membership with The Friends

By FPLFriends_Susan

Want to be Friends with us?

Members of he Friends of the Frisco Public Library can be found at the library nearly every day. Members prepare and restock the shelves in the Bookshop on the library’s main floor. Members have also assisted with the library’s ambitious neighborhood relabeling project and have hosted author visits. Volunteer opportunities will be growing with the move to the new library, so if you are looking for a group to become involved with, consider The Friends!

The Friends organization has always had a goal to fiscally improve the Frisco Library through fundraising. The Friends have raised money by:

  • Selling a series of commemorative Christmas tree ornaments featuring Frisco locations both old and new
  • Sales from the Bookshop (currently located on the first floor across from the check-out station)
  • Pop-up used book sales in the lobby of City Hall
  • The North Texas Giving Day program through the Communities Foundation of Texas

The primary ongoing fundraiser is the used bookshop which is full of books, puzzles, and games that have been donated by Frisco residents. Donations are always welcome but please check the list, opens a new window to make sure your donations will be useful.

Membership in the Friends of the Frisco Public Library is open to everyone and we would love to increase our membership as we transition into the new library. Membership is available for as little as $25/year. Member volunteers are needed to process and price donations which become bookshop inventory, serve on the board or as a committee chair, manage the pop up sales, and to support other library needs. If you are interested in joining the group please send an email to: FriendsofFriscoPublicLibrary@gmail.com, opens a new window and one of the officers will reach out with details.
