History

The Friends of the Library was first organized and ready to work in February 2009 as a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to support the Miramar Public Library.  Friends of the library serve as advocates to inform the community about the many services and programs that the library has, raise funding for a myriad of services, in addition to contacting state legislators about important library related issues.  As a nonprofit organization, we have operated without any government funding and raise money through sales from the Book Nook, quarterly Book & Bake Sales, and by the memberships that sign up. We have a long way to go in aiding the library funds and we take pride in doing so. We would love to invite you to join the Friends of the Library and make a big difference with such a small membership fee and volunteer time.

All profits from memberships, sales, and fundraisers pay for the library events, tutoring, literacy projects, and special programs for children, in addition to cultural exhibits, library equipment, book fairs, and professional growth opportunities for the library staff.  Being a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, all donations are tax deductible.
