What the Friends of Gulf Gate Library Do!
The Friends of the Gulf Gate Library is an organization which has membership dues and a Friends Bookstore which sells books, magazines, and other media materials donated for the purpose of raising money for the library. The Gulf Gate Library Friends membership and book sales play a vital role in making the library attractive and functional for everyone.
