One Year of Friends & Foundation

One Year of Friendship

Mind if we take a moment to celebrate you?

It has been one year since our rebrand to HPLD Friends & Foundation which included the launch of a new Friend program, newsletter, website and Facebook page!

Over this past year, our Friends have been an essential part in funding programs and experiences for our patrons. For example, the HPLD Friends & Foundation is the exclusive funder for the brand-new 100 Books Before Graduation program which launched in January. This program challenges 6 to 12th graders to read 100 books before they graduate high school. After every 25 books, they receive a prize. We are so excited to be apart of this program that our incredible librarians spearheaded. This program is taking place in branch libraries across the District so if you know a teen who may be interested, talk with your local librarian or sign up on the 100 Books webpage.

Because of your Friendship, we are able to support librarians in producing high-quality library programs and services so that they may be available for present and future generations of library lovers. 

Friend memberships do expire after a year, so if you want to stay our Friend (we would certainly like to stay yours) than you can either volunteer 25 hours at your library or donate $25 to help us build a community of library lovers.

Our New Sponsorship Menu is Live!

Featuring brand new benefits for your business.

We have been busy working on how we can best serve our community. Our sponsorship menu is a listing of sponsor levels that will translate across programs and events in the District that call for funding. This new process simplifies things for our sponsors, and for us! The levels have fresh benefits such as digital marketing, library tours, and even plaques on libraries. We hope you check out this new process and consider having your business sponsor a beloved HPLD program or event.
