Gaines County Library is excited to announce the establishment of Friends of the Gaines County Library System (FoGCLS). The primary purpose of FoGCLS is to promote and support library services in Gaines County, assist in providing supplemental funding for the library, help provide programs for the library, and to act as an advocate for the library.

County library funds are limited to maintaining of our current Library System. In order to provide activities, purchase more books and equipment, host community events and continue to provide current educational programs, your help is needed.

Annual dues to FoGCLS have been designed to fit most everyone’s budget so it’s easy to become a member. By joining FoGCLS, your membership dues and ideas will help expand library services.

Plus, by showing your FoGCLS membership card, you get to preview the Annual Fall Book Sale and purchase books before non-members!

Membership forms are available at both branches of Gaines County Library – 704 Hobbs Highway in Seminole and 311 Hill Street in Seagraves. To become a card-carrying Friend of the Library, membership dues levels are as follows:

Classic Lifetime - $500
Bestseller - $100: can become a Classic Lifetime member after five years at Bestseller level
Excellent Read - $50
Popular (Family) - $25
Top Ten - $10
Primer - $5
Scholarship

FoGCLS meetings are held at Noon on the first Thursday of each month in the Gaines County Library meeting room. Discussions cover upcoming events such as the Annual Book Sale, Summer Reading Program and other fun, educational activities for the community. FoGCLS members’ ideas and help are welcome.

The FoGCLS will be involved in projects to promote your library such as fundraising (Annual Book Sale, etc.), use of volunteers in the library, building projects, children’s programs, educational programs, promote library services, and advocating for the library to governing entities and local businesses.
