Book Bazaar – Our dedicated volunteers operate this monthly fundraising effort, which accounts for our largest single source of funding each year. Proceeds from the Book Bazaar go directly to the library for a variety of needs.
Community Organization and Networking – Through luncheons, letter-writing campaigns, face-to-face meetings, and community involvement, we encourage local government and business leaders to support the role that Hugh Embry Branch Library and the Pasco County Library System play in improving the quality of life in our community.
Library Improvements – Landscaping renovations, new library furniture, and technology replacements are among the many library improvements that the Friends support and/or accomplish.
Program Funding – Library programs for children, teenagers, and adults are funded in whole or in part through our fundraising efforts. Many programs are made possible through our recruitment of presenters and volunteers. Major annual programs funded in part by the Friends include the Summer Reading Clubs and Pasco County’s original and biggest Battle of the Bands.
