Welcome to the new website of the Friends of the Carroll Gardens Library.  Our goals are to support our neighborhood branch and encourage community residents to use the library more - come to the programs, check out more books, use the inter-library loan - this is your library - come use it! If you want to know more about FCGL and getting involved click here. This website will keep the community updated on FCGL's activities as well as what is happening at the library (see sidebar for current library programming and hours).

And tell us, what you would like to see at the library - What kinds of programming?  What kinds of books? How do you see a library functioning in the digital age?  Do you still love books as much as we do?  Do you have an e-reader?  Do you use it?  Do you have a stack of books next to your bed that you're trying to get through?  Do your kids come to the library?  Are there new programs you'd like to see for kids here?

Our first big event is a book sale to fundraise for the branch on Saturday, May 14, which fittingly is Love Your Library Day at the Brooklyn Public Library.  We do!!
