Mission: A group of concerned individuals and businessmen joined together in 1973 to actively promote quality library services in the county giving both of their time and financial support. In addition to sponsoring library programs, purchasing library books and materials, the Friends have helped with renovations for the library when it was in the old courthouse. They have provided landscaping, renovations, to include carpeting, recessed lighting, front entranceway, outside benches, a bicycle rack, meeting rooms, and many improvements to the "New" library. Our latest addition was ten folding tables, a caddy, and a podium for the meeting room. The Friends operate a "Used Book Sale Fundraiser." The Friends also maintain an ongoing "Friends" rack in the library and sponsor a "Summer Reading Program" among other events.If you would like to help your community library grow, join us by filling out the attached membership card.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact our President Jerline (Jeri) Cooper at 850-926-4930. History: In 1973, a group of concerned individuals and businesses joined together to actively promote quality library services in the county, giving of both their time and financial support. As a result of their efforts the Wakulla County Public Library was formed. From its first home in the old Rehwinkle Store (now Talquin Electric's new Crawfordville Office) and its next home, Wakulla's historic Old County Courthouse, the Friends have actively supported the library and the services it provides. In June1995 the Friends led an effort that resulted in the Wakulla Board of County Commissioners purchasing the land and building that is the present home of the library. Through fundraisers and donations the Friends were able to contribute over $30,000 to improvements to the bare bones structure that was previously a flea market so that the library could move into its new home. They painted the interior of the building, added emergency exits, created accessible bathrooms, built a large meeting room, added wall-to-wall carpeting throughout, and began landscaping the barren three acre lot. In December 1995 the Friends helped move the library collection from the Old Courthouse in Crawfordville to its new home in Medart with not even a one day interruption of library service. In 1997 a library renovation grant from the State of Florida, remodeled the building into the modern library facility that exists today. The large meeting room the Friends built in1995 was dedicated as the Peggy Martin Room in honor of the woman who as the Friends' President led the drive to obtain the new facility. Through the help of the Friends and the Iris Garden Club, the formerly barren three acre lot now resembles a paradise with arbors, butterfly gardens, rose bushes, other flowering shrubs and a wide variety of native trees. The Friends continue to actively support the library and the services it provides. Every year the Friends sponsor the library's Summer Reading Program, a series of entertaining and enriching programs for area youth and their families. In addition to thousands of books, videos, and audio books, added to the library collection over the years, they have purchased the public photocopy machine and computer printers, as well as the supplies needed to keep these items operating. The Friends also purchased the refrigerator in the meeting room kitchen, the benches and bike rack on the front porch, tables and podium for the meeting room, and many other items that enhance the service the library provides. None of these accomplishments would be possible without the financial support you provide. Your memberships, donations and support at fundrai
