Friends of Leon Valley Public Library

Since 1977, the Friends of the Leon Valley Public Library, a 501 (c) 3 tax-exempt organization, has been the support organization for the Leon Valley Public Library.

Combining the interests of both residents and business, the Friends have ensured that the Library has the extra resources that it needs to continue to be the “heart” of the city.  The Friends have raised money and provided volunteers for projects, furnishings, supplies, matching grants, and programs for every age group.
