Incorporated on March 1, 1985, Friends of the Hannibal Free Public Library is an association of people interested in our Library.  We focus public attention on the Library, and we stimulate the use of its resources and services.   

Friends raise funds and encourage the donation of gifts, endowments, bequests, and memorials to Hannibal Free Public Library.  We support and cooperate with the Library in developing services and facilities for the community.  When needed, Friends provide volunteers for services within the Library.  We particularly like to help with book sales and Library events.   

Friends act as advocates on a local, state, and federal level, and to support the Freedom to Read as expressed in the American Library Association Bill of Rights.
