Friends of the Lawrence Public Library LogoAbout the Friends

The Friends of the Lawrence Public Library is a non-profit organization that believes a strong library is vital to our community.  Through memberships dues and legendary book sales, they raise funds to support library collections, programs, and services.

If you’re interested in purchasing books but can’t wait for our next sale, a small sample of our collection is available on our Amazon site. Membership is an inexpensive way to support your library, you can get started by filling out this form.
