About The Friends of the Pasadena Public Library

Our mission is to support the library’s programs, special services and cultural events. Priority is given to projects that instill the excitement of discovery and the love of reading in library patrons of all ages.

Pasadena Loves our Libraries

In 1882 a library was established, the Pasadena Library and Village Improvement Society, several years before the City of Pasadena was even incorporated.

What We Are Doing

Currently the Friends are happily funding various programs and events.
