The Friends of the Punta Gorda Charlotte Library is a non-profit organization that supports the library programs and services. Funding for the Punta Gorda Charlotte Library comes from several sources, primarily Charlotte County.

The Punta Gorda Friends generously contribute much-needed additional funds for library resources that would otherwise not be available. Your membership in Friends furthers the appreciation of books, literacy and education in the community, supports adult and children’s programs, sponsors programs of community interest, publishes the BOOKMARK (a newsletter of library happenings), and operates the Friends bookstore, from which proceeds are funnelled back into the Library. Members of the Friends act as advocates for the Punta Gorda Charlotte Library.

“Libraries offer for free, the wisdom of the ages – and sages – and, simply put, there’s something for everyone inside.”
Laura Bush
