Give Your Library Some Much-Needed Help

Here at Hennepin County Library, checkouts are approaching an all-time high. Library visits are on the rise too. You can help by making sure that when your neighbors visit the library, they'll find the books and programs they need.

Your kindness will empower your neighbors to change their lives.

You’ll expand your library’s collection at a time when libraries across the nation—even in Minnesota—are under pressure to ban books.

You'll support the library's outreach at community events and in homeless shelters, retirement homes, treatment centers, jails, and more.

With a gift of any size, you'll become a member of Friends of the Hennepin County Library. You’ll receive member-only invitations to gatherings and stay up-to-date on library news. You’ll also receive discounts for events and local bookstores.

Please make a tax-deductible donation today to help readers throughout your community.

Friends of the Hennepin County Library is the fundraising partner of Hennepin County Library with a mission to build awareness, appreciation, and support for our world-class library. We envision a vibrant library that is a shared space for enrichment and connection for all.
