The Friends provide financial support to buy books and other materials for the
library’s collection, purchase needed items of equipment of furniture and help sponsor
library programs. The Friends promote and advocate for the Library by raising
awareness of library resources and provide refreshments for weekly summer music
programs, classic movie series and other events.
The Used Book Store, located at 32 Everett Street right down the street from the
Library, is the Friends' primary fundraiser and is staffed 100% by volunteers. Bookstore
shelves are stocked with used books on a wide range of topics, best sellers, books by
North Carolina authors, oldies and autographed books, children’s books, puzzles, videos,
DVDs and magazines. All items have been donated. Donated materials and volunteers
are always needed.
The Bookstore shares space with a talented local artists, whose photography,
paintings and prints are for sale in the Bookstore.
Our success depends on an active membership and dedicated volunteers. Join
the Friends and be a part of helping make our great Library even better!
