The Friends of the Houston Public Library, founded in 1953, is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to fostering wider recognition, use, and support of the Houston Public Library. The Friends Book Warehouse is the volunteer-powered, book-processing, and outreach program of the Foundation. The Friends support the Houston Public Library by processing used books and by supporting initiatives, and events through volunteerism and advocacy.
