Friends Funds at Work The Friends of Chapel Hill Public Library raise more than $150,000 for the Library each year from the sale of books donated by the community, membership dues and donations. In addition to an annual pledge of support for collections, programs, and services, the Friends fund a variety of special projects:
Explore More In Pritchard Park provides outdoor experiential learning opportunities in science, nature and the environment.
The Circulator brings staff, collections and services into the community.
The Summer Blast creates a fantastic season of story times, book clubs, special performances and summer reading programs for children and families.
The Welcome Hub provides a new modern service point for Library users.
The Library Lobby Redesign includes comfortable new seating, live plants, rugs and lamps.
The Banned Books Exhibit Opening and Meet the Artist Receptionprecedes the release of banned book trading cards to the public.
The programs and services the Library provides to our community would not make as much of a positive impact without the financial support provided by the Friends through annual memberships, book sale proceeds and other activities. These funds are put to use enhancing every aspect of the Library. We love our Friends! SUSAN BROWN Library Director
