Established in 1991, the Friends 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. From December 2011 to April 2012, the Friends have donated over $20,000 to the Library.
The all-volunteer association has five (5) membership classes: individual, family, contributing, sponsor, and benefactor.
The Board meets monthly, excluding June and July. An annual General Membership Meeting is held every February for the purpose of electing officers (members only voting). 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.
