Be A Friend

Friends of the Nashville Public Library come from all walks of life, and every Friend makes a difference! Becoming a Friend is a simple way to build a community that visibly supports the library. Your membership is invaluable; while your financial support helps fuel the ongoing programs the Friends provide, your involvement in the Friends helps create a passionate voice for the advancement of the library and its initiatives.

When you Become a Friend, you will get inside access to Friends' information. We let you know about upcoming events and booksales, and we will alert you to pressing issues so you can advocate for your library. For instance, in the event that library funding is being debated, we will inform you so you can assist in writing to your council-person. You will also have the opportunity to volunteer at Friends' special programs.

You can be as involved as you like! Pledge your support to the library today!
