Friends of the Library

The Friends of the Library invite library and book lovers to join us in supporting the Lake Whitney Public Library. While your support may be strictly monetary there are many volunteer opportunities as well. Many members donate both time and talent. As a Friend you receive early bird privileges, recognition for your support and contributions, permission to check out 10 books at a time and much more!
