Who are the Friends?
The Friends of the Lighthouse Point Library is a 501(c)(3) organization whose mission is to support literacy, programming, collections, and volunteers at the Lighthouse Point Library and throughout the community.

Are the Friends a recognized non-profit organization for tax purposes?
Yes. The Friends of the Library Lighthouse Point, Inc. were established in 1984 under IRS 501(c)(3) EIN 59-2331329.

What do the Friends do?
Each year the Friends add numerous items to the physical collections and sponsor youth and adult programming enhancements including: Special events, author talks, story time crafts, school field trip literacy packs, Teen Advisory Board needs, session snacks, and outreach programs to local schools. Moreover, the Friends support the Library’s wonderful corps of 100+ volunteers. This enables the Library and City to host an annual volunteer appreciation luncheon.
