Mission Statement

The mission of Friends of Henderson Libraries is to support the programs and services of the Henderson Libraries through fundraising and volunteers to ensure the Henderson Libraries can provide excellence to the community we serve.

Description

Friends of Henderson Libraries was incorporated in February 2000 with the mission of supporting the programs and services of Henderson Libraries through fundraising and volunteerism. Initial fundraising efforts were focused on selling donated used books at events. Over time these efforts have grown to managing monthly used book sales across all 3 libraries, Amazon on-line sales and library book store, executing the Library Tree Lane Gala, offering paid Friends of Henderson Libraries membership and encouraging donations.

Volunteering has also been a part of the Friends of Libraries vision from the beginning. Every year the time commitment and number of volunteers has increased. Today Friends’ volunteers ar
e utilized throughout the libraries including sorting and shelving books, teaching classes, preparing materials for circulation, helping at library events and managing many fundraising efforts for the library.
