Friends of the HP Library
Building Community, Connecting People
The Friends of the Harrington Park Public Library organized in 1991 after the library was municipalized and an expansion doubling the library’s size was completed. Proceeds from fundraising sales and events were used to supplement the budget of the new public library, which had a debt of $100,000 after the construction. The monies raised by the Friend continue to be used for library purchases that are outside the library’s annual budget.
As important as the funds raised, the Friends have a more vital role to the Library. Many H.P. residents have been introduced to the Library through programs offered by the Friends. Among the Friends most popular events are the WHITE ELEPHANT SALE, COLORING FOR ADULTS, & WINE TASTING.
