Friends of the Hennepin County Library is an active community of supporters - helping the Library fulfill its mission to nourish minds, transform lives, and build community. By raising critically needed funds for books, movies, music, programs and technology, and through the presentation of the highly regarded Pen Pals and Talk of the Stacks author series, the Friends of the Hennepin County Library opens doors and minds to new worlds.

Last year, 5.4 million people visited the Library in person, checked out nearly 17 million books and other items (and increase of almost 1 million) and attended library programs more than 210,000 times. All of this - for free to the community - even as budgets tighten.

Only with strong community support, can the Hennepin County Library remain one of the most used, most respected, most innovative, and best library systems in the country. We cannot do it without you. Thank you for giving as generously as you are able.
