What is FOCL?

The Friends of Connecticut Libraries (FOCL) is a non-profit organization consisting of local Friends groups, organizations and individual members who believe that libraries are an essential resource for the citizens of our State. 

We provide newsletters, workshops, conferences and visitations that support Friends functions such as fundraising, sponsorship of educational and entertainment programs, advocacy for their library, and in-library volunteer work like shelving and data processing.

Become a member

As a member of FOCL you become a part of a community of Friends groups, as well as individual, institutional, and corporate supporters, throughout Connecticut.
