Friends Call for Donations

The Friends of the Bay County Libraries need your help!  We are currently seeking donations of used or unwanted materials for our Annual Book Sale.  Proceeds from the sale support programming and other expenses not afforded by the Bay County Library System’s regular budget.  If you have materials you wish to donate, please call any of our branch libraries to arrange drop off.

We also need people who have a little extra time they would like to donate to make our book sale successful. We have a multitude of jobs available for those who wish to help us.
