Friends of the Thomas Jefferson Library


Thomas Jefferson Library.

Founded by Mary Rose in 1954, the Friends of the Thomas Jefferson Library have been one of the oldest supporters of this Library branch since it was located in the rear of a barber shop. The Friends were also an active force in 1960 during the development of the present Thomas Jefferson branch through their strong backing of a $2 million bond issue that funded the building. Over the years, the Friends have been active in their support of the branch as the neighborhood transitioned. In 2002, a rejuvenation of the Friends commenced with an eye on the diversity of the community, the growing volunteering needs of the branch, and the support for funding a new building.
