The Pickens Library needs your help. Public funding has not kept pace with the demand of library services. Friends raise money to help the library. We also work to increase public awareness of the library’s services and its needs.

Friends of the Library have access to the Members Only Pre-Sale at our Community Used Book Sale.

Cade Turbeville

 836 Eagle Scout Project

Friends of the Pickens Library would like to invite you to visit their new Little Free Library the next time you have business at the County Administration Building on East Church Street. This Little Free Library is the Eagle Scout project of Cade Turbeville, whose father, Brent, is a board member of the FOPL.  Cade raised the money for the materials needed and along with fellow scouts constructed and installed the new  Little Free Library.  It is a beautifully crafted addition and we are grateful to Cade and Scout Troop 836 for a job well done.

 

A converted old metal paper box in the hallway off the lobby served the public well for years as many children took their first picture books from its shelves while parents were taking care of county business at the Administration Building. That box will now be converted again into service as a food pantry for the homeless and hungry. Just an old fashioned paper box prolonging its usefulness and making life a little better for our fellowman.

 

There are several Little Free Libraries throughout Pickens county providing residents of all ages the opportunity to enjoy a variety of books conveniently located near their home, work and daily activities.

 

We are excitedly anticipating the reopening of our newly renovated and enlarged Pickens County Library in September. To keep up to date we suggest that you like and follow on Facebook Friends of Pickens County GA Library or visit us at friendsofpickenslibrary.org.
