Mission Statement

The mission of the Friends of the Chestnut Hill Library is promoting the needs of the Library’s patrons, expanding utilization of its facilities, and to organize community support for the mission and vision of the Free Library of Philadelphia. That mission is to advance literacy, guide learning, and inspire curiosity. It's vision is to build an enlightened community devoted to lifelong learning.

Description

The Chestnut Hill Library Friends is a voluntary, not for profit organization committed to making our library, one of the best community libraries, even better. Founded in the 1970s, the Friends remain dedicated to promoting knowledge of the needs and values of our library and to raising funds and encouraging gifts for its support.

The Chestnut Hill Library Friends has grown into an organization of hundreds of households whose members contribute thousands of hours of their time to supporting the Library through fund-raising events, providing garden maintenance, shelving of books, assisting librarians, and planning events to build Library use and awareness. Recently, a major project has been the opening of a used book shop, located a block from the library, as a tool to raise funds, awareness and provide coordinate programming for the benefit of the community.
