The Friends of the Palm Beach County Library were established in 1980 to enhance library services, provide financial assistance for special events and to advocate for library needs. Currently, the Friends contribute more than $200,000 annually to the Library through fundraising efforts that include donations of materials, gifts to the collection, copier revenue, bequeaths and an annual used book sale held every January at the Hagen Ranch Road Branch.
