About FRIENDS


The FRIENDS of the Heights Libraries is an all-volunteer organization whose mission is to promote interest in, and appreciation and use of the Heights Libraries. Membership is open to anyone who has an interest in the Heights Libraries.

The FRIENDS raise money to support its mission through the sale of used books and audio-visual materials as well as through memberships, donations and special events.  The 2013-14 Budget anticipates total income of $39,770 and expenses and grants to the library totaling $36,515. We typically grant $25,000-$30,000 to the Library each year.


In 2012-13, the FRIENDS granted $30,945 to the library for the following uses:
