"The only way to have a friend is to be one."
Ralph Waldo Emerson

Who are the Friends?

Friends of Nashville Public Library is a nonprofit 501 (c) 3 organization that supports the work of our wonderful public library. We are committed to enhancing the library's rich resources and culture by advocating within the community,  providing financial support for special programs and projects, administering gifts on behalf of donors to the library, and supporting volunteerism. Every branch library has Friends, and all are joined together under the group's charter.
