FRIENDS of the Gulf Beaches Public Library
is a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) organization with the purpose of promoting and supporting the public library that serves residents and visitors of Madeira Beach, North Redington Beach, Redington Beach, Redington Shores and Treasure Island. The organization was founded in the 1950’s and continues to provide the library with funds and services for resources which are not necessarily possible through funding by the cities.
Visit our Bookstore in the Library entranceway! It is open every day the Library is open and offers books, magazines, paperbacks and audiovisual materials at bargain prices.
During July, the FRIENDS of the Gulf Beaches Public Library held two drawings:
One for a Beach Basket filled with items for summertime fun – a beach towel, yoga mat, sports bottle, sand toys, "beach" books, coupons for Redbox® film rentals, etc. and the
Second for a Back-to School Backpack loaded with binders, pens, an iTunes® gift card, a dictionary, erasers, etc.
As it is often said, "Some people have all the luck." In this case it was Jane Jordan of Madeira Beach who was lucky enough to win BOTH baskets! Congratulations to Jane (twice) and thank you to all who donated to this fundraising project.
