The purposes of this corporation are:
to promote public use of the Bulverde/Spring Branch Library;
to develop appreciation of its value as a cultural and educational asset to the community;
to supplement library services and materials beyond the library’s normal operating budget,
and to encourage the extension and improvement of its services.
The corporation also supplements the library’s mission to provide an environment that inspires a life-long love of learning with programs and activities that make available educational and cultural opportunities not normally accessible to members of the community.
A Friend of the Bulverde/Spring Branch Library is a person who shares a common desire to perpetuate the growth and to promote the interest and the welfare of the Bulverde/Spring Branch Library as a cultural and educational asset to the area by supporting fund raising, activities and events sponsored by the Friends of the Library.
Friends host activities and events for the Library that help to foster community involvement and cultural awareness, support the enjoyment of the Library and its resources, and conduct fund-raisers to help the Library with funding over and above the Library budget.
The Friends of the Library pledged $100,000 over a five year period and completed that pledge in 2011. This pledge was part of the Capital Campaign and monies raised have been used for items that the Capital Campaign committee have indicated were needed for the library such as additional shelving, landscaping, audio/visual equipment, computers, fencing, etc. In addition to this pledge FOL also provides additional funds as needed for special projects, equipment, books, programs, etc. that the library director deems would enhance our library.
