Friends of the Library

Support the Winter Haven Public Library by becoming a member of the Friends of the Library. Memberships dues are $10.00 a year. With your membership, you can do as little as just paying your membership dues, to volunteering in the Friends of the Library Bookstore. You can also become involved in the events and programs that are scheduled throughout the year.

Yearly events and programs include:

  • The Jingle Bell Classic Run is typically held in December and volunteers are needed to collect applications and handout shirts. All proceeds from this event benefit the Library’s Children’s Department.
  • Sometimes the overflow of donated books warrants having a special book sale inside the Library. This requires sorting books, setting up tables and collecting money.
  • The Friends of the Library Book Review Series where members come for refreshments and listen to a fellow member review a specific book. You may even win a free book!
  • Members receive a copy of The BookMark, our quarterly newsletter. You can also pick one up at the Book Store.
