Twin Lakes Library System

This post about a potential closing of a library and the mention of similar situations in the comments show how precarious funding for libraries can be. This is the reason we exist. We raise money to provide quality programs and supplies for our community through our local Statesboro-Bulloch County Library! We will be at the Farmers Market tomorrow, so bring the kids by for a free book, and browse our adult selections available for purchase. Better yet, join us in this important mission to ... See more

Statement on Potential Library Closure and Drastic Funding Decrease, by Library Director Stephen Houser

In the past 7 months, because of a drastic proposed funding reduction from Baldwin County, our library system has been in limbo as to its future.

Downtown Statesboro Development Authority

Great share from the Downtown Statesboro Development Authority! If you haven't visited our library lately, you're missing out! It's a busy place filled with people using the free resources that are available there. The FOL group is happy to be able to fund many of these programs, as well as to buy supplies, furniture, and other goods for our community to use at the Statesboro-Bulloch County Library!

A “million word gap” for children who aren’t read to at home

Astounding! One of our efforts is to promote literacy, so we will be at the Statesboro Main Street Farmers Market on Saturday, June 8, handing out a free book to each child who comes by. We will also have a selection of books for purchase. Stop by, get to know us, and maybe join us in this community effort to support the education of our community.

People Who Read A Lot of Books Are Way Nicer, Kinder and Empathetic

We agree - the FOL folks are a really nice group of people. If you love books and our local library, we would love to have you join us! The more members, the more we can do for the library and our community!
