The Friends of the Kyle Library operate the Thrift Shop on Lockhart Street in Kyle for the library’s benefit . Donations of various items for resale have made it possible for the Thrift Shop to save up $100,000 for the new library building, in addition to its regular contributions.
Besides its main function of supporting the library, the Friends have contributed coats for school kids, clothes vouchers for the homeless, and aid to families whose homes have burned. Soon to begin is a project for working with high schools in training vocational students in retail sales, and an expansion to the current shop is planned for the near future.
The Friends of the Kyle Library is made up community members – like you, for instance. Joining it means contributing $10 in annual dues and volunteering when and if you have time. There is one annual meeting, though members can attend all planning meetings if they choose. The group is actively seeking new members, new ideas, and greater community involvement in activities that make Kyle a better place to live.
Interested? Call the Thrift Shop (512-268-1036) or the Kyle Public Library (512-268-7411) and leave your name and phone number. Someone will contact you. A little help goes a long way in the Friends organization. Joining is one of those things that will make you feel good.
The Thrift Shop is located at 100 W Lockhart St, Kyle, TX 78640
