Our Mission

The purpose of this tax-exempt nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization is to provide an avenue for people interested in the library to advocate for the library and offer volunteer as well as financial support to the library.

What We Do

We provide much needed funding in support of numerous library activities and events to include:

Thanks to a mini-grant from the Friends of the Library, NHCPL now has Family & Friends CPR Anytime® kits that can be checked out by our patrons. These kits include everything an individual needs to learn & practice hands-only CPR at home, church,  school & more.

“Without the Friends of the Library, we couldn't put on the number of outstanding programs that we do each year. The Friends of the Library support of our programming has been instrumental in providing meaningful programs and activities that make a positive impact within our community ”

 

Harry Tuchmayer,

NHCPL Library Director

“Thanks to the Friends of the Library, we have been able to launch the production of a rap album of songs written and recorded by local children last year at the Library's Rap Club. They have helped us so much!"
