Poudre River Friends of the Library

The Poudre River Friends of the Library, a non-profit organization, was founded in 1939 to support the Fort Collins Public Library. With the creation of the Poudre River Library District, it continues that support although its name has changed to reflect the above change in the jurisdiction of the libraries.
Membership is open to all in the community who are interested in supporting the Poudre River Public Libraries. Our mission is to enrich the educational and financial resources of the Library as well as to act as an advocate for it and to increase the awareness of its value to the community.
