The Friends of East Lake Community Library is a non-profit 501 (c)(3) organization that raises money through book sales and other fundraising events. Monies raised help to support materials and services not covered by library tax funds, while promoting, enhancing, and supporting the library. All are welcome at Friends meetings, held at 10:00 am on the second Thursday of every month.

How can you help?

Book Nook & Online Sales

Donate your gently used books and media to FOELCL.   We provide a tax letter for your donations upon request.  Donation bins are located on the side of the library.

Donations are used in the library and sold in our Book Nook , on eBay or Amazon. Some are used in community outreach efforts.

Baskets, Raffles & Auctions

Year-round we have a variety of gift baskets for sale at the front of the library.  Donations of new and “like-new” items are used to create these clever gifts.

Watch  for Special Raffle Baskets and Silent Auction items available in the library.
