Friends of the Litchfield Park Library
The Litchfield Park library branch staff is no longer allowed to accept any donations for the Friends group. This is due to a rule change with the MCLD. We will have to have a separate donation bin. We have purchased the bin, but it takes a couple of weeks to arrive. Please return with your donations after Dec. 7. Thank you.
The Friends Bookshop is open, please drop by the library to visit our shop.
Friends is a national organization of volunteers dedicated to libraries and the people who use them. Friends work to expand and enlarge the scope and service that the library provides to its patrons. The Litchfield Park Library is a branch of the Maricopa County Library District. The Litchfield Park Friends group was chartered in 1995.
The primary goal of the Litchfield Park Library friends is to raise money to help in providing additional program assistance to the staff of the Litchfield Park Library. The secondary goal is the promotion of reading and literacy. The main source of funding is the sale of books that have been discarded by the county library system along with books that have been donated to the Friends . These books are sold in the Friends Corner in the library's reading room, which is located in the back right corner of the library.
Hardbacks are $1.00
Children's Books $1.00 for hardback and $.50 for paperback
Paperbacks are $.50
DVD's and Audiobooks are $1.00
There are also a few specially priced books that are individually labeled.
Payment is made at the front desk of the library, cash only.
