Friends of the Fayette County Public Library Serving Fayette County Since 1985
Our organization was formed March 14, 1985 when a group of mutually interested citizens met to discuss forming a library support organization. By-Laws of the organization were adopted June 10, 1986 by the officers, Rose Hall, Susanna Howle, Collin Kelley, Betty Parker, S. Powell and Mickey Seigle. The group met monthly and formalized its status by December 1986 as The Friends of the Margaret Mitchell Public Library, Inc.
The name of the library was changed to The Fayette County Public Library when the library moved to its present location in January, 1997. The organization amended its By-Laws September 12, 1997 to become the Friends of The Fayette County Public Library.
