The LaFayette-Walker County Library is supported by the local Friends of the Library whose members volunteer to work on projects and activities which benefit the library.  The Friends of the Library host an annual Open House and Book Sale to raise funds that go to support the LaFayette-Walker County Library's Summer Reading Program and other material needs.  The Friends of the Library also provide a Gift Shop that is open daily to the public during normal library hours.  The Friends of the Library meet regularly on the second Thursday of each month at 3:30 PM.

The LaFayette Walker County Library is home to the Doris Coulter Hetzler Memorial Georgia History & Genealogy Room which houses a special collection of books, microfilm, files, and other materials needed for genealogical and historical research. Although the collection focuses on Georgia (primarily Northwest Georgia), other states are represented. Adjoining states and migration route states are of interest to our researchers. The Walker County Historical Society collection is in our Georgia Room, plus local organizations and individuals donate materials. Betty Johnson manages the Georgia History and Genealogy Room.

The LaFayette-Walker County Library offers weekly pre-school Story Hour each Monday morning at 10:00 AM.  A monthly Home School program is offered the third Thursday of each month at 1:00 PM.  Other programs for all ages are scheduled periodically.  A meeting room (seating capacity: 50) is available for public use by contacting the Library Manager for desired dates.
