In 1992, Frances T. Bourne founded The Friends of the Jacaranda Public Library to raise funds to help build and furnish the new library. Throughout the years, the Friends have continued to raise money to purchase additional items for the library, including books, furnishings, computers, and other technical and electronic devices.
We sponsor most of the children, youth and adult community programs held at the library. The Library and Book Shop volunteers are recognized at an annual dinner, we provide, that is held in their honor.
