Because we are using a City owned building, we must comply with all of the directives issued by the City Of Keller relative to COVID-19. We strongly recommend that you wear a mask and maintain distance from other customers. Should you need to wait in order to enter the store, we will have several bookcarts on the sidewalks so you may browse while waiting.
Our Bookstore relies on volunteers, and we could use some help. If you'd like to volunteer, please contact Linda Engle at 817-705-4336. We'd very much appreciate your support.

For an 11th consecutive year, the Keller Public Library has been honored with the Achievement of Library Excellence Award from the Texas Municipal Library Directors Association recognizing staff for their commitment to service and educational programming in our community. Only 56 libraries from among the nearly 570 public libraries statewide made the cut for this prestigious honor in 2020. The award is given annually to libraries that demonstrate service excellence in 10 areas:
“Awards like these are a testament to the incredible work our staff is doing day in and day out, and the wonderful community we've been able to create in partnership with our patrons — even in an extraordinary year like 2020 that challenged our normal offerings," Director Jana Prock said, "I'm so proud of this team's passion, creativity and commitment to excellence."
The City of Keller recently announced the 2020 Employees of the Year awards.
Ann Flournoy, Adult Services Librarian for the Keller Public Library was selected the Employee of the Year for Creativity.
Keller Public Library Services Manager Kelly Holt was selected as the Overall Employee of the Year.
The Friends congratulate Ann and Kelly for their tremendous contributions!

The Friends of the Keller Library is a registered non-profit organization consisting of dedicated individuals who care about our community and the future of our children and grandchildren. Our mission is to support the Keller Library in its efforts to provide access to information for life-long learning. To do this, we raise funds for the Keller Library, mainly, through our bookstore.
Monthly meetings are on the 3rd Thursday of each month at 6:30 pm, usually at the Library.
Please stop by and check us out. Buy some books or donate some of your own for future resale. You will find bargains in every category.
Another way you can help us in our efforts is to become a volunteer. We need people to staff our store for two hours at a time- either 10am-12pm or 12pm-2pm on Wednesdays or Saturdays.
Also, consider becoming a member to show your support of the Friends and the community. You can be an active member (volunteer) or an inactive member. The choice is up to you. Click here to become a Friend of the Library.
Members of the Friends work all year to raise money. Although the bookstore is our main source of income, we do receive additional funds from membership dues, donations, grants and fund-raising events. The money is used to purchase items and programs for the library - things that would not be possible otherwise. We especially focus on children, providing materials and financial support for programs throughout the year.
