Founded in 1992, the Friends of the Buda Library is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit dedicated to supporting the Buda Public Library. The organization is run by a dedicated group of volunteers who:
More than half of library programs are funded through the Friends. In 2019 our $15,000 donation helped support youth and adult programs including Summer Reading Club, Summer Programming, Boo-da Halloween, Full STEAM ahead, Spring Fling, Holiday Extravaganza, and Library Card Sign-Up Month. Our donation also supported the purchase of books for circulation (award winning books, downloadable books and audio books) and online resources (Mango Languages and World Book Online).
Through the generosity of members and local business partners, the Friends has been a major contributor to the success and growth of the Buda Public Library for more than 25 years. From its humble beginnings as a shelf in City Hall to a present day modern vibrant learning hub, the library's continued success depends on our community's support.
