FRIENDS OF THE BCPL
Find out about the Friends of the Buchanan County Public Library!
The Friends are a wonderful group of library volunteers and supporters who sponsor author visits and book signings, take on projects such as landscaping the library, serve as program volunteers, and raise funds for the library.
The Dollywood Foundation Imagination Library in Buchanan County is supported by the Friends. This program provides a book a month to children under five to keep for their very own. Parents or guardians may sign a child up at birth or anytime up to 5 years. The sooner the child joins the imagination Library is the more books he or she will receive. Books will be mailed to the child’s Buchanan County address every month until the child has his or her fifth birthday. There is no cost to the parent or guardian. The Friends raise funds and ask for grants to cover the cost of $30 per child per year. To sign up, come by the Circulation Desk at the library or fill out this form and mail it to the library.
