Homosassa Friends

Friends of the Homosassa 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.

About the Homosassa Friends

Established in 1991, the Friends of the Homosassa Library is a non-profit organization whose purpose is to enhance the materials and services of the Homosassa Public Library through fundraising and donations. The Friends raise and give money to support classes and events at the Homosassa Library, as well as to enhance the Library’s collection.

Meetings & Membership

The all-volunteer association has five (5) membership classes:


The Board meets monthly, excluding June and July and August. An annual General Membership Meeting is held every February. The Public is cordially invited to attend the event, where a special speaker and refreshments are provided. New Board of Director volunteers are always welcomed.

The Friends hold two major fundraising events each year in the spring and fall to support the Homosassa Library. Membership dues and donations also help meet fundraising goals.

Correspondence can be sent to the President addressed to the Homosassa Public Library, 4100 South Grandmarch Avenue, Homosassa, FL 34446-1120.  Membership information and our latest newsletter are available at the Homosassa Branch.
