The Friends of the Livermore Public Library have raised more than $1 million for the Livermore library since the group was founded in 1978.
In the past year, the nonprofit organization gave the library $8,500 for the Livermore Reads Together program, $500 for the Homework Help Center at the Rincon Library; $12,800 to support the Summer Reading Program prizes, and $12,000 for the Kanopy video streaming service.
That brings the nonprofit’s cumulative contributions over the last 43 years to $1,000,558, according to Treasurer Matthew Berry.
The library group raises funds through membership dues, donations, and sales of used books in the Friends Bookstore at the Civic Center library.
