Friends of the Library
The Friends of the Temple Terrace Library (or "the Friends" as it is commonly known) was formed in 1962 and became a Florida corporation with tax exempt 501 (C)(3) status in 1997. Its purpose is to support the Library financially by raising funds through private efforts to secure equipment, furnishings, and materials that cannot be acquired within the constraints of the city budget. Over the past 36 years, many thousands of dollars have been raised to support the Library. An additional function of the Friends is to also promote the Library and its services within the community.

The members of the Friends organization pay an annual fee and further contribute their time by participation in fundraising activities. The Friends also wrote, published, and sell a book on the history of Temple Terrace.

Book Nook
When the library was expanded in 1998, the Friends were able to realize a long held dream of initiating a continuing fund raising activity through the opening of the Book Nook. Located in the lobby of the library, it offers high quality used books for sale at low prices. Members of the Friends organization staff the Book Nook.
