Meet the West Gwinnett Chapter of FOGL
To better serve the needs of library patrons in the communities that surround the fifteen branches, FOGL has announced the formation of the first regional chapter of the group. The West Gwinnett Chapter of The Friends of the Gwinnett County Public Library will support all of FOGL’s countywide initiatives and programs but will also focus on the needs of the branches and patrons who live in the Duluth, Peachtree Corners and Norcross areas. They will host events, fundraisers and projects that benefit FOGL as a whole and the Duluth, Peachtree Corners, and Norcross branches in particular.
Members promote library advocacy and raise funds to support the library system’s cultural, artistic and literary events, such as the award winning annual Fall into the Arts series of free programs, Gwinnett Reads, the annual countywide adult reading program, and the enormously successful children’s Summer Reading Program.
- The chapter received a grant of $1000 from the Gwinnett Braves to buy bilingual books for the Norcross Branch.
- Chapter and other FOL members conducted the Readin’-n-Writin’ Round-Up with 3 authors and raised over $1200 for the Summer Reading Program.
Please see descriptions of each of these in the Events section of the website.
