The Friends of Berks County Public Libraries organization was formed in 1980 to support the public libraries throughout the county. The organization is a volunteer, non-profit association dedicated to supporting all of the public libraries in the Berks County System.
Since its creation the Friends organization has taken on the responsibility for its primary source of revenue, Book Bonanza. Its annual book sale has been incredibly successful and resulted in the Friendsí ability to provide welcome funds to the libraries.
In addition the organization has engaged in a variety of other ventures.
