Who We Are

The Carson City Library opened its doors in June 1966 thanks in part to the time and talent of the founding Friends of the Carson City Library. Since that time the Friends of the Carson City Library, a 501(c)(3) non-profit, has donated its substantial support to many library projects and much-needed acquisitions. 

Becoming a member of Friends gives you the opportunity to make a direct contribution to maintaining and expanding our city library. As a valuable community asset, it provides education, enjoyment and enlightenment for current and future Carson City generations. 

Funds are used to pay for programs such as Summer Reading Program and National Library Week activities. Friends’ donations also contribute to the library’s book and e-book collection as well as help update software and purchase new computers. 

Browsers Corner Book Store

Browsers Corner Book Store is the major fundraising mechanism for Friends of the Carson City Library and the bookstore donates up to 95% of all net proceeds to the library. The bookstore is staffed entirely by dedicated volunteers who gift their time and talents to make Browsers Corner Book Store a welcoming destination for shoppers.

All of the inventory in the bookstore has been donated by generous community members. Bookshelves are stocked with popular fiction, children’s books, history, self-help, arts and crafts and coffee table books. Media materials and much more can also be purchased in the store for relatively low prices. 

In the ten years Browsers Corner Book Store has been operating, it has been able to donate over $348,000 to support programs and book acquisitions at the Carson City Library.
