1Friends of the Library: Join FOL

Join Friends of the Library

Become a Friend of the Library 

Established in 1971, the FOL is dedicated to providing social and literary events to Queens and the Charlotte community.

We host several events throughout the year for our members. 
They include Fall and Spring Books and Coffees, which feature well-known authors and book recommendations from Park Road Books, two Local Author Events highlighting the work of authors close to home, and the very popular Book and Author events which feature headlining authors at both a cocktail reception and luncheon.
