To better serve the needs of library patrons in the communities that surround the fifteen branches, FOGL has announced the formation of our second regional chapter of the group. The South Central Gwinnett Chapter of The Friends of the Gwinnett County Public Library will support all of FOGL’s countywide initiatives and programs but will also focus on the needs of the branches and patrons who live in the Five Forks, Lilburn and Mountain Park areas. They will host events, fundraisers and projects that benefit FOGL as a whole and the Five Forks, Lilburn and Mountain Park branches in particular.
Members promote library advocacy and raise funds to support the library system’s cultural, artistic and literary events such as the award winning annual Fall into the Arts series of free programs, Gwinnett Reads, the annual countywide adult reading program, and the enormously successful children’s Summer Reading Program.
The South Central Chapter will host an open-house and new member drive on Monday, January 27th from 6:30pm-8pm at the Five Forks branch. Please join us to learn more about FOGL.
