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.
Library lovers everywhere are invited and encouraged to join the Friends of the Library. These dedicated volunteers advocate for libraries, raise much needed funds, sponsor programs and special events, and host popular used book sales. Become a Friend today. For information about joining Friends of Batesburg-Leesville Branch Library or to find about specific programs, call (803) 532-9223.
