A Friend of the Bulverde Area Rural Library District is a person who shares a common desire to perpetuate the growth and to promote the interest and the welfare of the Mammen Family Public Library as a cultural and educational asset to the area by supporting fund raising, activities and events sponsored by the Friends of the Library. 

   

Our Mission:

The purposes of this corporation are:

- to promote public use of the Mammen Family Public Library;

- to develop appreciation of its value as a cultural and educational asset to the community;

- to supplement library services and materials beyond the library’s normal operating budget,

- and to encourage the extension and improvement of its services.

The corporation also supplements the library’s mission to provide an environment that inspires a life-long love of learning with programs and activities that make available educational and cultural opportunities not normally accessible to members of the community.
