Friends of the Hennepin County Library is an active community of supporters for our Library, dedicated to opening doors and minds to new worlds. We raise critically needed funds for books, materials, programs and technology, and present the highly regarded Pen Pals and Talk of the Stacks author series as well as numerous free cultural programs.
Your support makes a difference for everyone who uses the Library’s extraordinary services and resources. Last year, a staggering 5.8 million people visited the Library and checked out more than 18.3 million items. The HCL website registered 21.4 million visits, and 200,000 people participated in free Library programs. This wouldn’t be possible without dedicated supporters.
Strong libraries strengthen our communities. Your support of the Friends of the Hennepin County Library makes a tangible difference for everyone who uses our Library’s extraordinary services and resources.
