I'm a friend, are you? Friends of the Library, Calcasieu

Friends of the Library, Calcasieu was formed by a group of concerned citizens to serve as a link between the Library and the community and to raise money for special projects. 

Friends of the Library, Calcasieu are parish residents who work together to help the Calcasieu Parish Public Library, including all twelve branches and Library To-Go, better serve the community. Friends strive to enhance and promote the use and enjoyment of the Library as well as sponsor special programs and activities. Friends also provide supplemental funding for the Library and actively support its policies and procedures.
