Friends of the Laguna Beach Library
About Us

Over 50 years ago, volunteers who desired to make our library
special, formed the Friends of the Laguna Beach Library.

Today the Friends take pride in making the library a
better place for all who enter the automatic “new” doors. 
Supporting the Friends means supplying funds for craft days, magazine subscriptions, major interior improvements,
reading programs, college scholarships,
unique and interesting speakers, and lots more.
