What We Do

Since 1957, the Bellevue Friends of the Library have worked to raise awareness and encourage community involvement in one of our most valuable resources–our libraries. Revenue from our fundraising events contributes to the programs and services offered at the Bellevue Library, Lake Hills Library, and Library Connection @ Crossroads. We offer used books and more for sale at The Corner Book Shop located in the Bellevue Library, and make used books available in the Friends’ Book Corner at the Lake Hills Library. We also organize several used books sales each year, as well as host gatherings for our members.

Our books are donations from the community. Check out The Corner Book Shop. Find out about our many volunteer opportunities and how you can support the work of the Friends.
