The Friends of Tulare County Library helps fund the successful Summer Reading Challenge and so much
more. In addition, branches in Exeter, Dinuba, Lindsay, and Three Rivers have local Friends groups that
provide additional support to their branch. Now, more than ever, your library needs your help. A well-
stocked, well-staffed, and vibrant library is a basic necessity in all our communities.

starting a Friends group at your local branch.

and host popular the ongoing and special event book sales at the Visalia Branch Library. Friends
volunteers are needed to help sort books, help at events, and serve on the board.
