Our Friends of the Library

 
     The public libraries in Carteret County are fortunate to have active and dedicated Friends of the Library organizations. Each group supports its library with contributions for items and services such as audio books, the summer reading programs, adult education programs, additional equipment and furnishings, supplies, and supplemental materials.
     Book sales are an important means of raising funds. Each group has a special “in-the-library” book sale where bestselling titles are offered at bargain prices. {Book Sale Page}
 
Friends of Bogue Banks Public Library holds two annual book sales each year at the Shepherd of the Sea Lutheran Church  in Atlantic Beach. The funds raised last year helped to pay for this library’s new outdoor media return.
