Friends of the Library

Become a Friend of the Library!

Help support the library by joining the Friends of the Lake Travis Community Library! The Friends contribute to the library through book sales, volunteer work, maintaining the butterfly garden, and financial contributions.  If you are interested in helping with the Friends Bookstore or serving on another committee, please complete a Volunteer Application.

One of the Friends’ special projects is supporting teen service scholarships. Each year the Friends of the Library award scholarships to one or more graduating teen volunteers planning to continue their education. For more information, please see the Teen Page.

The Friends of the Library is a 501(c)(3) organization and eligible for corporate matching programs. Please read the bylaws and minutes for more information.

Friends of the Library Bookstore

A labor of love, the bookstore is staffed entirely by volunteers from the Friends of the Lake Travis Community Library. All proceeds from the bookstore will fund Friends of the Library projects so remember that when you shop, you are supporting the library and getting a great bargain at the same time!  Noteworthy projects include a scholarship program, which awards financial assistance to teen volunteers who are continuing their education and initiatives like the 2021 Summer Reading Challenge which recently granted a total of $1,000 to local food banks.

For your convenience, the bookstore will accept cash and Venmo payments.

If you are interested in helping with the Friends Bookstore please complete a Volunteer Application.

Calling All Artists

The Friends of the Library sponsor an ongoing rotating art exhibit. Local artists interested in being a part of this program should pick up a packet containing the policy and application form at the library. Packets are now available and will be eligible to be considered for display in the upcoming months.
