Friends of McKinney Libraries

Who Are the Friends?

We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit membership organization whose mission is to support the library system and enrich the community by providing cultural and life-long learning opportunities. 

Programs Sponsored by the Friends

  • Read Across McKinney - The Friends are instrumental in planning this community project in which a book is chosen for the community to read and discuss. Past events included author visits, luncheons, and a play at the McKinney Performing Arts Center.
  • Financial support for library materials and programs
  • Children’s Summer Reading Program support
  • Cultural and literary programs for adults, including the Adult Review Series

Upcoming Events

  • Please check back for our next reviews to be announced.
  • Reviews will be virtually via Zoom until further notice.
  • All programs are free of charge.

What Do the Friends Do?

  • As an Active Friend, you can support the library by volunteering to plan projects or events.
  • Or you can choose to be a Silent Partner who supports the group with a membership payment. Your membership supplies the extra funds our library needs to continue to be a valuable asset to our community.
  • You can also show your support by purchasing a Friends Book Bag for $10. These are available at the library circulation desks.
  • You can also support the library by sponsoring a major library event.
  • Check out our new Facebook page.
