The Friends of the Library was formed to establish a free public library system in Collier County. The ongoing mission of the Friends is to support Collier County Public Library; to obtain greater usefulness or wider use of library; and to support the literary and educational needs of the community through the Public Library.

These numbers are adjusted as our donors continue to contribute to the Friends of the Library of Collier County.
