Welcome!

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 between.

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.

The application form for the 2018 Frannie Ashburn volunteer award is now available. Deadline for receipt is October 13, 2018. There will be no Frances B. Reid Award in 2018.

MEMBERSHIP IN FONCPL

Your membership is important to FONCPL. The group and individual dues are the only source of funding for FONCPL. Those funds help to publish the newsletters sent to members and to provide for the awards and workshops sponsored by FONCPL.

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."
