How To Volunteer

Thanks to the community organizations and their volunteers for their help at the Book Sale.


Our May and October Book Sales are the main source of funding for the Friends of the Tompkins County Public Library organization.   The proceeds from our sales mainly benefit the Tompkins County Public Library  (TCPL) and the Finger Lakes Library System (FLLS).  We also support organizations working for literacy in Tompkins County.  Check out Where Does the Money Go.
