Friends of the Library Sponsored Programs & Events
Friends Newsbookstore

If you haven’t visited The Friends’ Bookstore, located in the Main library, please come on in! We update the shelves with new donations every day. Many of the books available are recently published, especially the large paperback books. The prices are a bargain at 50¢ for paperbacks and $1.00 for hardcovers. Children and Teen books are located on bookcases on the second floor outside of the Children’s Department. The money raised by the sale of these books supports library programs and museum passes for our library patrons and materials requested by the library staff. Watch for banners and posters announcing a Weekend Book and Media Sale over the next two months!

The Friends of the Huntington Public Library is a 501(c)3 not-for-profit organization. This means that our supporters can deduct financial contributions and book donations to the Friends on their federal income tax returns. We would like to thank all our members for their commitment to the Friends as we look for more ways to promote and support our local public library.

The Friends Annual Book Sales are highly anticipated events. In addition, the Friends hold occasional weekend book sales and maintain a Daily Book Sale Room on the first floor of the Main Street branch of the library. Funds raised from book sales and membership dues are used to support library programs, purchase museum passes, and provide equipment and materials to enhance patrons’ experience.

Friends of the Library memberships run from July 1 to June 30 of each year. We welcome new members who share our commitment to the Huntington Public Library.!

Huntington Public Library received a substantial rebate from PSEG for the LED lighting conversion project completed earlier this year. We thank PSEG for providing these cost saving initiatives to help us control costs while improving our facility for taxpayers.
