Tax dollars do not meet all the annual expenses of the library.
The challenge for the Friends of the Library, an independent 501 (c)(3)
nonprofit, is to "bridge the gap."
Library Friends volunteer their time and talents to promote the use of the library and
its valuable services and resources, assist library staff, and raise funds to enhance
library services. They advocate for library issues and consult with library staff to
help identify areas where the Friends can be of service.
The Friends raise funds for computers, upgrades, childrens' reading programs, literacy
initiatives, and new materials including audio books and DVDs. As a Friend of the
Twentynine Palms Library, you can choose how little or how much your involvement
will be. One thing is for sure: you are needed and you will be among "Friends"!
How to Support the Friends
Receive email invitations to Friends of the Library events, and
updates on news, announcements, and book sales. Know that your membership dollars make Twentynine Palms a smarter place to live.
Board meetings are held at the library, the second Tuesday of every
month, at 5 pm.
