Friends of the St. Mary’s County Library (FOL) is an organization of persons interested in libraries who advocate for and support the library as a group and individually. Friends of the St. Mary’s County Library has raised over $644,000 and counting for St. Mary’s County Library. The FOL holds an annual book sale at the St. Mary’s County Fairgrounds every Spring, an annual brunch in Winter, and an annual dinner in May.
The FOL was unable to hold their annual Spring and Fall book sales this year, but they’ve recently opened an online shop where you can browse, order, and purchase items! All sales are PICK-UP ONLY behind the old Leonardtown Library at 23250 Hollywood Rd. in Leonardtown. Find all the details on their shop! Questions? Call (240-561-9828) or email (firstname.lastname@example.org) the sorting room!
Members receive FOL newsletters and early buying privileges at the Spring Book Sale before the sale opens to the public. Membership runs January through December. If you join or renew after October 1, your membership will be through December of the following year.
