Covid-19 Update (October 8, 2021):

The Friends of the Brown County Library (FBCL) continues to follow the lead of the Brown County Library in an effort to minimize the spread of the Covid-19 virus.  The FBCL's priority is to protect the health and well-being of our members and volunteers, and in turn, that of any library staff and library patrons with whom we may interact.  For the latest information on library policy, please visit the Library's website.   

For our upcoming book sales, we are  accepting used book donations, and our volunteers are allowed to enter the Central Library building to sort those books.  Please refer to our "Help Us / Donate / Books" page for the types of materials accepted, our "Activities / Big Book Sale" page for details on the November 2021 sale, and our Facebook page (see window at the bottom of this page) for any updates.

Thank you for your continued patience and understanding as we all strive to stay healthy and safe.


The Friends of the Brown County Library is a non-profit, non-partisan organization that recognizes and works to improve the vital role the Brown County Library plays in making sure that local residents have lifelong access to these resources.

Since its founding in 1963, the members, volunteers, and donors of the Friends have helped guarantee the continued success of the 130 year old Brown County Library system, which includes the Central Library in Green Bay, Wisconsin, the eight branches in Green Bay and surrounding Brown County communities,  and the traveling bookmobile. 


The Friends are best known for our annual literacy campaigns (Give-a-Kid-a-Book and Born to Read), our Big Book Sale fundraisers, and our numerous sponsorships of library and literacy events throughout the year.  We welcome you to check us out, and invite you to join us as we work to maintain our Brown County Library as a vital community resource.
