Friends of the Hershey Library

Hershey Public Library is fortunate to partner with one of the most passionate and active Friends groups around.

Friends sponsor programs for adults and children alike, including our annual National Library Week author visit, and provide funds for equipment and furniture, such as the AV systems in our meeting rooms. Over the last four years, the library has undergone renovations in stages. Remodeling of the Hershey Room and the renovation of the library's lobby were both a recent cooperative project between Friends and the Library Board of Directors. The proceeds from the Friends annual book sale that raises upwards of $50,000 provides programming and renovations helping us to achieve our goals of great customer service in a modern and user friendly environment.

Friends are the backbone of the library, providing invaluable support and enthusiasm; since 2001, twice receiving recognition as Friends Group of the Year, bestowed by PA Citizens for Better Libraries. Have you joined yet?
