Friends of the Library

Friends of Batesburg-Leesville Branch Library is a nonprofit organization, governed by a Board of Trustees, whose mission is to support Batesburg-Leesville Branch Library by raising awareness and financial support.

Philanthropic support from our generous donors has enabled Lexington County Public Library to establish innovative programs that have a huge impact on the life of our community. While public funding supports basic library operations, private support helps to ensure a higher level of service both now and in the future. It’s what makes a great library even better.
