Who are the Friends?
The Friends of the South Huntington Public Library, a not-for-profit organization, has been supporting the library for more than 50 years. The group fosters closer relations between the library and the residents of South Huntington, enhances knowledge of the functions, resources, services and needs of the library, and promotes the improvement of library services, resources and facilities.
What do the Friends do?
Friends volunteers support the library in a number of ways. They make a contribution to support the annual Summer Reading Clubs for patrons of all ages. They also host events, including the annual book sale, author visits, Fall Fair and Veterans Big Band Tribute Concert. The Friends coordinated the successful Donor Recognition Campaign to raise money for the Outdoor Garden, fund an annual scholarship for a graduating senior at Walt Whitman High School, sponsor a raffle in support of the library’s annual budget vote and have purchased permanent art for the library. Most recently, they funded the establishment of a Learning Garden, just off the reading patio behind the library, which was planted with vegetables and herbs.
