Friends of the Library

The Friends of the Library (FOL) was founded in 1971 by a group of interested citizens who pledged to provide support and resources to Everett Library. FOL is a vibrant organization dedicated to providing social and literary events to the Queens campus and the Charlotte community through book and author events, social and cultural gatherings, book clubs, and fundraising.

Visit the Friends of the Library website for more information.


Over the past 51 years, Friends of the Library has donated more than $1 million to Everett Library at Queens University of Charlotte. In addition to our quality programming, FOL memberships and financial contributions enable the library staff to connect with and provide valuable resources to students.
