Friends of North Carolina Public Libraries—our statewide volunteer Friends of the
Library organization—provides a network for sharing ideas and resources to
strengthen our public library service statewide.

Our fine public libraries serve all North Carolinians, providing myriad programs and
services for people of all ages—from infants to senior citizens and everybody in

There is beauty and purpose in the work of all the people who direct or support public
library service in North Carolina, and since 1980 FONCPL has been an enthusiastic
advocate for their efforts.

Your membership is important to FONCPL. The group and individual dues are the only source of funding for FONCPL and those funds help to publish the quarterly newsletter sent to members and to provide for the awards given annually.

Membership is for the calendar year. For some idea of the importance of membership, read "Why It Matters". Friends groups are encouraged to join our network of support. Individuals can also be members and receive our newsletters. Working together, we are making North Carolina libraries the "very best places".
