WHY: Funding for the Punta Gorda Charlotte Library comes from several sources, primarily Charlotte County. The Punta Gorda Friends generously contribute much-needed 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.

  • Highly visible support in your community as a library patron
  • Recognition as a Friends Business Patron in our “Bookmark” newsletter, sent by mail to over 700 local members
