Join - Take time to be a friend

The Friends of the Library is a volunteer group which serves as a citizens' advisory council to the trustees and the librarian. Friends of the Library stand ready to volunteer their talents, funds, and influence to promote, improve, and expand library service.

  • Library Director - develops programs for the library, serves as a chief administrator for all library plains and functions and implements polices set up by the trustees.
  • Trustees - appointed by the Laurens County Council. The Trustees administer the budget, appoint the library director, and formulate policies for the management of the library.

Your membership helps us support the library with special programs and by purchasing needed equipment and materials for our county library system. Take time to be a friend—print the PDF iconLCPL FOL-Membership-Form.pdf and send your dues today!
