The Friends of the Tompkins County Public Library

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.
