Friends of the Coastal Region 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.
