Founded in 1973, the Barbara Bush Library Friends (BBLF) is a 501 (c) 3 non-profit organization supporting the Barbara Bush Branch Library, a branch of the Harris County Public Library System. The Friends are an active volunteer group that raises money for the library though its bookstore, membership dues, sales of book bags, and other fund raising activities. The library uses these funds for additional programs, special events, new equipment, and new books for children, teens and adults. The goal is to enrich the educational and cultural opportunities available to residents of the Cypress Creek area and beyond. BBLF is proud to be Better Business Bureau accredited charity.
