The Friends of the Irving Public Library
Friends of the Irving Public Library began as
a private corporation made up of Irving citizens dedicated to promoting
interest in and welfare of the Irving Public Library. Originally called,
"Irving Municipal Library Association" it was recorded as a non- profit
corporation on Sept. 5, 1961. The incorporators were: William H. Yeandle,
L.E. Keller and Mrs. Victor Alexander.
The Friends of Irving Public Library spreads reading and the love of books
in our community by raising funds for library programs, materials such
as books and magazines, and resources like databases. They are among the
city's most fervent literacy boosters, working hard at author programs,
book sales, and the North Texas Teen Book Festival. The annual Friends
book sale attracts book hunters from all over North Texas, and the August
Teacher's book sale helps stock up local classrooms with inexpensive child
and teen reading material.
Over the years these original founders, numerous volunteers and the current
board members have given and continue to give their tireless efforts in
support of the Irving Public Library. Thus for over 55 years The Friends
of the Irving Public Library have expanded services and opportunities
for their members and for the library. The Friends now offer 1st Wednesday
of the month book sales for members, preview night at the annual book
sale for members, branch book sales to accommodate library customers in
all 4 locations, teachers book sale to support books in the classrooms,
handle funds for grants, donations, sale of author books at events in
addition to an annual pledge to the library for resources and programming.
