Believing that strong libraries contribute to strong communities, Friends of the Library of Collier County provides programs and services at the 10 Collier County Library Branches.  Friends pay for several hundred adult and children’s educational programs each year, genealogical reference materials and databases, and LEAP which employs teen students to provide tech and computer support to library patrons.  Please become a Friends member and continue these vital activities.
