Finding Aid for the Friends of Freeman Library Records (#2018-0002)
The Friends of Freeman Library Records is composed of meeting minutes, reports, correspondence, financial records, fundraising records, volunteer information, photographs and negatives, a 16mm motion picture film, flyers, brochures, newsletters, scrapbooks, newspaper clippings, and miscellaneous materials, documenting the founding and operation of the non-profit organization Friends of Freeman Library. The Friends works to support what was the Freeman Memorial Library when the organization was first founded around 1966 in coastal Houston, Texas. Most of the records touch on the operation of the Friends of Freeman Library and the Freeman Library itself. The most significant organizational records are the board meeting minutes for Board of the Friends, financial records, newsletters, and membership information. There is also a large number of records related to the Friends’ fundraising efforts for the new Clear Lake City-County Freeman Branch Library building in 2004.
