The Friends of the Hot Springs Public Library is a non-profit civic organization, staffed by volunteers, dedicated to the improvement of our public library. We support activities not provided in the library’s budget and projects that enhance the relationship of the library with the general public, schools and the business community.
The Friends provide a program of financial support to the library to help strengthen its resources and services in the community. Our organization promotes public recognition and awareness of these resources and encourages residents to support the library. We exert a positive effort in selected public, professional and business sectors to foster goodwill and wider recognition of the library’s capabilities and improve community relations.
