Friends of the Library

The Friends of the Chapel Hill Public Library is a non-profit organization committed to furthering the excellence of the Chapel Hill Public Library. With more than 550 active memberships, three annual Big Book Sales, and a bookstore that operates on the Library’s lower level, the Friends raise more than $65,000 each year.

Those funds support a wide variety of programs and services, including Summer Reading, Movies @ the Library, the Friend’s Bookshelf, Book Club Bags, and Banned Books Trading Cards. The Friends also host the long-running Meet the Author Tea series as well as the popular Books Sandwiched In monthly book discussions.

Bookstore hours: 

Monday-Wednesday 12:00 pm – 6:00 pm
Thursday-Sunday 10:30 am – 4:30 pm
