The Friends is a local organization, founded in 1980 and dedicated to the support
and enhancement of the Champaign County Public Library system.
They donate funds for the purchase of supplies and programs that the library
cannot provide from its own budget. As you know, the Friends' funds come from membership dues,
gifts, and special activities like book sales.
Your support of the Friends of the Library is one of the best ways you can
say "thank you" to the dedicated staff of the Champaign County Library.
Join the Friends of the Library today! The Friends of the Champaign County Library
meet the first Tuesday of each month at 7:00 p.m. in the library meeting room.
The Friends of the Library book sales are the first Thursday, Friday, and Saturday of May and October
and run from 12:00 pm to 8:00 pm on Thursday, 9:00 am to 8:00 pm on Friday,
and from 9:00 to 3:00 pm on Saturday.
If you are a Friend of the Library, or volunteer to set-up or help run the book sales,
you have access to the Friends of the Library pre-sale
on Thursday mornings from 9:00 am to 11:30.
