The Friends of the Chattanooga Public Library are community members who donate time and money to support activities such as literacy programs, special library events, professional development of library staff, and programs for special populations.
The majority of our fundraising dollars comes from the semi-annual book sale. Other funds received are from annual dues, memorial gifts, donations to the Friends’ Endowment Fund or special projects.
We also raise funds through our Alibris on-line sales. When you are looking for a book to purchase check out our on-line offerings
The funds are used solely for library needs that go beyond what is provided by the City of Chattanooga. Through the Friends' continuing volunteer efforts and financial support, the library has been able to offer summer programs for children, teens, and adults.
