The Maricopa Cultural Activity Center, Inc. is an Arizona non-profit corporation doing business as Friends of the Library – Maricopa (FOTL).  FOTL is a tax exempt 501 (c)(3) nonprofit organization.

We are volunteers dedicated to support the Maricopa Library & Cultural Center in the city of Maricopa, Arizona.  Friends of the Library raise funds by re-selling gently used books, CD’s, and DVD’s; which support our Library’s  literacy programs, book purchases, and other important activities.

The mission of the FOTL is to develop resources for library services and programs, encourage enjoyment of reading, and to establish lifetime learning and community involvement. 

Friends would not be able to financially support the Library and its programs without the continued support of our local Maricopa businesses and our dedicated volunteers. We represent all members of our community and welcome everyone to join our group. 

For more information about FOTL events, please email our Chair
