Who are the Friends of the Athens Public Library and what do they do?We are a group who promote our local library and advocate and support its many services to the community of Athens. We draw public attention to the resources available and lend financial and moral aid when needed. Throughout the year we invite guest authors to speak, sponsor book readings, do some fundraising, promote Library Week, and much more. We believe that everyone should have the freedom to read. Our Friends group is currently not operational.
