Advocacy: The friends are able to advocate on behalf of the library at the local, state, and federal levels.  

Financial: The friends help provide the resources for additional programming; much-needed equipment, support for children’s summer reading, and special events throughout the year.

Service: Many of our friends choose to give the gift of their time to the Friends bookstore, fundraisers, book sales, and outreach events that spread the word and raise funds for the library.

Located at the Hopewell Library We are a used bookstore, stocking a selection of fiction, classics, nonfiction, juvenile, and children’s books at very reasonable prices.

Proceeds from the bookstore support children's and adult reading programs, and the purchase of equipment, materials, and resources to enhance library services beyond the library’s budget.
