The Kilgore Public Library is encouraging locals to join the Friends of KPL, or to renew their membership, as the Friends are hosting a giveaway this week.

“If you love the library, it’s a great way to show your support. They fund all of our events and programs through fundraising, requesting sponsors, and regular memberships dues. We wouldn’t have such a fun Summer Reading Program without them!” read a post from KPL.

You can join online here: www.CityOfKilgore.com/220/Friends-of-the-Library-Incorporated, or you can come by the library and join in person.
