MISSION: Supporting the Educational and Cultural Programs of the Van Alstyne Public Library.

FRIENDS help the library:

— Host fun and educational programs.
— Provide literacy opportunities.
— Enrich our community.
— Purchase books and other resources.

Adults learning in technology centerOur library is best known for providing free access to thousands of books, e-books, audiobooks, and DVDs, but today's library is a hub of programs for children, teens, and adults.

A state-of-the-art computer lab allows residents, many living in rural areas with no internet access, a place to do coursework and search for jobs. Although the library is located within the City of Van Alstyne, patrons visit us from throughout Grayson and Collin counties as well as the city of Anna.

On any given day, our library may see preschoolers gathering for storytime, elementary students experimenting with science, teens celebrating anime, and adults meeting for book club. The public library is a home for lifelong learning. But, the city budget is limited -- this is where volunteers and donors step in.

If you are new to our community: Welcome! Supporting our library is a great way to get involved and meet new people -- we have more than 130 members, and there are volunteer opportunities to suit your schedule.

No monetary donation is too small. Bring us your books for the book sales.
