Tompkins County Public Library


The Friends of the Tompkins County Public Library are just that—friends, contributors, supporters—of all the good things happening at TCPL. 

Along with making grants to TCPL and other area literacy-focused nonprofits, the Friends of the Library hold a biannual booksale (May and October). The booksale features thousands upon thousands of materials of all kinds--not just books! Proceeds support the Friends' literacy efforts around Tompkins County. To learn about donating materials, volunteering, or obtaining a membership, visit their website here.
