The Friends of the Hilton Head Library was organized in 1971 as a non-profit organization to promote literacy and encourage the pursuit of lifelong learning through the use of the library's resources. We raise funds to help the Hilton Head Library be the first-rate public service our community values expect. The Friends buy books, equipment, and supplies that are not covered by county and state funding; sponsor events and speakers that are interesting to our community; and sponsor children's reading programs, as well as many other learning and growth opportunities for both kids and adults. The bulk of our funding comes from membership contributions and the proceeds from our Friends' Bookstore located in the lobby of the library.

Friends of the Hilton Head Library is a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit.
