Friends of the Library


Helping with Events

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

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.


           
Notecards

Friends of the Hannibal Free Public Library sell boxes of 10 folded cards and envelopes.  These lovely cards show a photo of our beautiful neo-classical library building.  They may be purchased at the Library for $10 a box or by mail for $13 a box.  Sales tax is included in the price.  Checks should be made payable to Friends of the Hannibal Free Public Library.
