About the Friends

Friends of the Library

Established in 1987, The Friends of the Hampton Library is a nonprofit volunteer organization that supports and promotes the Hampton Library. The Friends raise funds to pay for resources and materials not covered by the Library’s budget. In the past money raised has funded the Children's Summer Reading Program; transportation, books and uniforms for our teen's competing in the Suffolk County Battle of the Books; and pilot programs like our circulating museum pass collection. Most recently, the Friends money has been used to replace the Hampton Library outdoor sound system and purchase ear set micophones.

Friends of the Library

Our most popular fundraiser, Fridays at Five, is the literary event of the Summer. In the past we have also hosted a variety of summer parties from barn dances to cocktails and even a party inviting you to stay home.

The Friends of the Library typically meet the second Wednesday of the Month at 4:00 pm at the Library. If you wish to join the Friends, please email and include your name and contact information. A member of the friends committee will reach out to you.

“You can make more friends in two months by becoming interested in other people than you can in two years by trying to get other people interested in you.”
