What POPL Does
The annual Author/Illustrator Workshop and the Summer Reading Club are just two of the many programs which the Patrons of the Public Library supports with volunteer efforts and financial assistance. In 2000, the Patrons sponsored the first Book Sale to benefit the Library. Some of the new and used books that are donated to the Library, but not needed in the collection, were offered for sale. Since 2006, monthly book sales of gift books have been held at Recycled Reads, 13505 Hooper Road in the City of Central.
The Patrons help to support programs and events by purchasing special materials not provided for in the Library budget. In addition, the organization supports the campaign for passage of the Library Tax.
Why POPL Needs You!
Today, more than ever before, the Library needs your support!
Patrons work to assure proper funding for public libraries at the local, state, and national levels. Through the efforts of the Patrons of the Public Library, the East Baton Rouge Parish Library can continue to provide unique and essential services, events, and programs for our community.
