Branches of the Henderson County Public Library
The main branch of the Henderson Country Public Library is the hub of the wheel and the five branch locations are the spokes of that wheel. Having library access close to home is important. These locations provide a unique sense of community. The Friends know how important these branch locations are. We make sure that their needs are considered and satisfied.

How Friends of the Library Helps
Friends of the Henderson County Public Library supports all six county library locations by delivering a wide range of services that enrich and transform the lives of citizens of all ages.
Specifically, the Friends provide essential support for our public library system by:
- Purchasing books, media, furnishings and equipment needed to assure that our libraries remain among of the top mid-size county libraries in North Carolina
- Funding many of the free cultural and entertaining programs available to the community at our library branches
- Purchasing creative play and learning tools for young children (e.g. Lego tables and puppet theaters).
- For teens we provide YA (young adult) books, STEAM (Science, Tech, Engineering, Arts and Math) materials and programs
- Each summer, the Friends support the summer reading programs from Pre-School, K-5th graders, Teens (6th-12th grades) and Adults
- Finally, the FOL provides development funds for library staff to gain new skills and ideas
