About Friends

Driven to Support the Camarillo Library The Friends of the Camarillo Library is a non-profit organization run solely by volunteers.

 

To accomplish its mission of supporting the Camarillo Public Library, the Friends utilizes funds derived from memberships, monetary donations, bequests and the sale of donated used books, CDs and similar materials. The donated books and materials are sold in our bookstore attached to the library. 

 

The Friends of the Camarillo Library is a non-profit, 501(c)3 tax exempt corporation. All donations to the Friends are tax deductible. The money raised is used to provide the Camarillo Public Library with books and materials, library equipment, and other enhancements to the library and its programs. The funds are also used to support the Library Summer Reading and Activity programs, as well as monthly programs for adults.

Through generous donations and patronage of our Bookstore, the Friends provides up to $200,000 annually in support to the Camarillo Public Library!
