Covid-19 Update (Feb 9, 2021):

The Friends of the Brown County Library (FBCL) is following the lead of the Brown County Library in an effort to reduce the further 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 services, please visit the Library's website.   BCL COVID Page

In keeping with these policies, FBCL group volunteering and meetings typically held in a library building continue to be postponed or cancelled until further notice.  Most notably, this has affected our major events.  While the Give-A-Kid-A-Book campaign, including book collection and distribution, has been held under strictly controlled conditions, other 2020 events such as the FBCL Spring and Fall Book Sales have been cancelled.   In addition, due to our inability to sort donated books inside the the Central library building, book donations for our sales are not being accepted at this time.  Please refer to the Friends Facebook page (see window below) for any updates.

Thank you for your continued patience and understranding 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 biannual 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.
