Friends of the Huntington Library

A new Friends of the Huntington Public Library group is forming. We have just established the Friends group as nonprofit organization! Our mission is to support the library’s special programs and purchases through fundraising and advocacy. We hope to get the community involved, and we will need as much help as you are willing to give! Watch for updates on the library’s website and on Front Porch Forum. If you are interested in helping out, or would like some more information, feel free to email the Friends at

The Friends of Huntington Public Library are excited to announce this year’s Annual appeal. Look for our brochure in this month’s issue of the Times Ink or pick one up at the library. The Annual Appeal is the Friends’ most important fundraiser. Please donate as generously as you can to support our town library and all of its many programs. We very much appreciate all gifts!

Please remember to make your checks out to Friends of HPL.”

Thank you so much!
