Give to the Library

The Fresno County Public Library welcomes support from our community

to enhance the services we provide. We work alongside our partner nonprofit organization, The Friends of the Fresno County Public Library, to raise funds for programs and services that are outside of the Library's budget.

Unfortunately we are unable to accept book donations at this time due to COVID-19. Please hold on to them until we are accepting donations again. Thank you.


The Friends

The Friends of the Fresno County Public Library, or as we simply call them, The Friends, is the nonprofit partner organization to the Fresno County Public Library. The Friends help the Library by raising funds, accepting book donations, and helping the Library enhance our services throughout the county.
