Friends of the Library

Friends of the Johnson City Public Library is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to the welfare of Johnson City Public Library. The group provides funds for physical and digital Library materials, programs, and staff support. These funds are raised primarily through bi-annual fall and spring book sales, an ongoing sale throughout the year at the Library, and memberships in the Friends.

Follow Friends of the Johnson City Public Library on Facebook for updates about book sales and other news.
