What We Do

The Friends of the Round Rock Public Library provide funding and manpower to enhance Round Rock Public Library services to library users. We build library support among community members through events such as the Summer Reading Program, a monthly November membership program, and the Mystery Night community fundraiser held in the Spring. We also raise funds through an ongoing used book sale.

Who We Are

Join us in enhancing the Round Rock Public Library experience!

We are an independent non-profit 501(c)(3) corporation that supports the city-funded library but is not part of the government. We have an independent board of directors, with the library director serving as an ex officio member.

The Friends of the Library celebrated its 30th Anniversary in March 2010. In addition to funding from book sales and memberships, the Friends of the Library also administers a library-specific fund financially managed by the Round Rock Community Foundation.

How You Can Help

There is a need for a web designer and someone to maintain the website, someone to check email and respond to it, and a coordinator for the annual November program. What would YOU like to contribute to the Friends of the Library?

Book Sale

The Friends sponsors an ongoing booksale and a twice yearly sale.

Visit The Friends of the Round Rock Public Library book store located on the 2nd floor. The "Book Nook" is open during library hours. Donations of books, CDs, DVDs, etc. in good condition are welcome.

Prices:

  • Hardback books: $2.00
  • Softcover books: $1.00
  • Children's books: $.50

Half-price books sales occur twice a year. Check the Library website for anncouncement of sales.

Sample Projects

Significant projects funded by the Friends of the Library include the children’s service desk, a range of tall audio-visual shelving, and co-funding of the children’s computer station.

What is less visible is the funding for books and programming such as the Round Rock Reads Galveston Hurricane Exhibit and assistance with Black History Month and Hispanic Heritage Month.
