Friends of the Chambers County Library System

The Friends of the Chambers County Library System consists of members and volunteers who promote Library services and resources while sharing their love of books with the community. The Friends foster a positive relationship between the Library and the community, secure volunteers and raise funds to support the Library. The Friends work toward the enrichment of library services, and to finance library projects not possible with County funds.  To date, the Friends have raised $165,100 towards furnishings for the Goss Library.  Ongoing fundraising efforts continue until their balance of $209,191 is paid.  In 2003, the Friends were recognized as Group of the Year by the Anahuac Area Chamber of Commerce.

Any donations or dues can be made in person at the library, or be sent to:
