Why is it important to be a member of FONCPL?

In this time of declining resources and of increased demands being placed on our library systems, it is incumbent on each of us to do our part in supporting both our local  libraries and the state library system. The Friends of North Carolina Public Libraries (FONCPL) exists as an umbrella organization to provide liaison with the State Library and support for local Friends organizations.

Your annual membership dues are the only source of funding for Friends of North Carolina Public Libraries.  These funds enable FONCPL to hold five free regional spring workshops for Friends groups across North Carolina  providing opportunities for sharing, learning, and networking. Popular roundtable topics at these workshops include fund-raising, membership recruitment, book sales, programs, and advocacy at the local and state level.  Dues are also used to fund awards made for outstanding Friends of the Library service through two different recognition programs -- the Frances B. Reid for outstanding Friends groups and the Frannie Ashburn Volunteer-of-the-Year awards.  Additionally, each year speakers at our fall Annual Recognition Luncheon offer timely information for Friends groups who attend.

Many local Friends organizations and public libraries hold group memberships in FONCPL and individual Friends members are also encouraged to hold personal memberships.  Each membership provides the member with a subscription to the FONCPL newsletter.

A slate of State Officers and Area Directors, all of whom volunteer their time and service, provides direct support to Friends groups by sharing their knowledge and experience whenever requested.  A list of the area representatives for your area of the state is available on this website.

Your support of FONCPL, local Friends of the Library groups and of our fine library system statewide is appreciated.  We hope that you value our work and will choose to become and to remain a member of FONCPL.

FONCPL is a 501(c)3 organization and dues are tax deductible as allowed by law. Membership runs from January to the end of the following December.  Come join us!
