About us

Why does the library need Friends?

The answer is simple: a library is only as great as the community that supports it.

Public libraries enrich our lives and empower us to grow. As the 6th largest city in the nation and growing, we believe that it is essential to Phoenix's success that everyone have equal access to FREE literacy opportunities via our public library system. But tax revenue can only provide the basics. As Library Friends, we’re here to ensure that Phoenix’s public libraries have the resources they need to help our community thrive.

We raise funds to supplement programs & services. And we advocate for adequate resources.
