The Friends are a group of committed individuals that promote and fundraise to support services & resources of the Hibbing Public Library.
During 2016 we :
- Supported both the Winter and Summer Reading programs. More than 700 children participated, had a great time, and improved or maintained their reading skills this summer.
- Sponsored a book and library bag sale during The Festival on 5th. Used books were available for a donation.
- Helped library staff with the library table at the National Night Out. 200-300 people stopped by our table for information, candy, and give-aways.
- Hosted a special program for area book clubs.
Plans are currently underway for the annual Yuletide Festival and a new fundraising event.
