Chapel Hill Public Library

A department of the Town of Chapel Hill

Support CHPL's Friends and Foundation

The 550-member Friends of the Chapel Hill Public Library is a non-profit organization of citizens committed to furthering the excellence of the Chapel Hill Public Library. The Friends coordinate all the Library’s programs for adults throughout the year, fund special programs for children and donate $30,000-$35,000 annually to enhance the Library’s book collection.

The Chapel Hill Public Library Foundation was formed in 1997 to raise private funds to expand CHPL’s collection and services. The Foundation has been leading a special purpose capital campaign that began in 2006 with 9300 Books Now! – Phase One of the campaign. Phase Two went through end of calendar year 2011. They are now in Phase Three of the campaign, which runs from 2012 until 2014. Since its founding, the Foundation has donated more than $800,000 to the Town for enhanced library services.

All gifts and donations received by the Foundation are tax-deductible. Gifts to the Foundation will not be used to replace local government dollars spent annually to operate the Library.
