Supporting Our Library, Helping Our Community

Thank you for visiting!

We are a diverse group committed to the support and enhancement of the Tempe Public Library. We advocate for and financially support library programs for readers and learners of all ages.

We sell used books through our in-library and online bookstores, manage our lively coffee shop, Connections Cafe, and host lifelong learning classes through our partnership with Arizona State University. Community volunteers come together daily to accomplish our goals!
