Join Friends of the Library
The Friends of the Knoxville Public Library promote the library's services and resources, volunteer to assist library staff, and help generate financial support for the library through membership fees and fund raisers, including book sales held in April and August.

- A donation of $200 toward the ELMA book bash.
- The purchase of a new laminating machine
- A donation of $500 to support the summer reading program.
