Friends of the Library
When you become a Friend of the Pine Bluff/Jefferson County Library System, you are showing your pride for one of the community’s greatest institutions.
Friends of PBJCLS is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization formed to establish closer relations between Pine Bluff/Jefferson County Library System and the people it serves; to aid, promote, develop and advance the operation of the Library; and to support and cooperate with the Library in developing community services.
Funding for the organization comes from memberships and profits from book sales. The Friends lines of business have evolved over the years because of the desire to provide more support to the Library. The greatest support to the Library is in making sure that each donated book (or item) is marketed in the line of business that will generate the most profit.
The Friends of PBJCLS is committed to serving the community by: providing quality, gently used items (books, cassettes, VHS, etc.) at an economical price; providing one time only or ongoing volunteer opportunities in a comfortable environment; and, marketing items donated in a responsible manner that will generate the most for the Library as the donor has intended.
