Mid County Friends Support Our Library and Community

The mission of the Friends is to promote awareness of, appreciation for and the use of the Mid County Regional Library.

Friends provides the library with much needed funding to increase the media collections, fund children, teen and adult programs , procure furniture and equipment for the library and assist with building maintenance and improvements as needed.

To accomplish these goals, Friends raises money through membership dues, special events and the Friends Bookstore. As a non-profit, the Friends receives donations and contributions from individuals, businesses, other non-profits and corporations. Friends provides funding for events and projects that benefit the Charlotte County Library system as a whole.

Join with us and make your Library even better!

 FRIENDS Bookstore is Open Daily from 10-7
