Friends of the Campbell County Public Library

friends_cclp_transThe Friends of the Campbell County Public Library is a nonprofit, equal-opportunity organization with 501c3 tax-exempt status. Our purpose is to promote and improve library services, materials, and facilities for the people of Campbell County.

Friends of the Campbell County Public Library help by volunteering for a number of tasks from hosting library events to assisting staff with special projects. We seek to create public support for the library by keeping the community informed about library services.

Friends also work in a variety of fund-raising activities that help the library in areas outside the scope of its regular staff and budget. Funds are raised through membership dues, used book sales, Kroger Community Rewards, Amazon Smile, as well as through the encouragement of tax-deductible gifts to the library.
