Friends of the Library
The Friends of the Library are non-profit organizations dedicated to enhancing public library service for the citizens of Citrus County. Friends are people who love books, love to read, and want to help others enjoy the pleasure of reading. Friends raise money to support the library through memberships, used-book sales, promotional item sales, special events, and donations.
Friends of the Citrus County Library System (FOCCLS)
The Friends of the Citrus County Library System (FOCCLS) was established in 2001 when the Friends of Central Ridge, Coastal Region, and Lakes Region Libraries joined together. The Friends of the Floral City Library joined in 2018. Together, they manage the sorting, storage, and preparation of items for annual and sidewalk sales. The friends work to make the libraries better for the community by donating their time and energy both inside and outside the library through book sales, fundraisers, and volunteering.
