The Friends of Neill Public Library organization was established in 1980, with Terence Day serving as its first President. Over the following decades, FNPL membership has significantly grown in number. We have helped with major projects, including the Heritage Addition to Neill Public Library completed in 2004. We continue to assist our library as needs arise.

What We Do

Collections – FNPL provides funds to purchase new and replacement items for the library, including both physical and electronic items.

Programs – We provide funding for many of your favorite library activities and programs for children, teens, and adults.  Program support includes sponsorship of the popular story times for children, adult computer classes, guest speakers, and much more.

Other Projects – FNPL provides the funds for other projects, too.  These items have included purchasing patio furniture, sponsoring the Summer Reading Program, paying for library employees to attend training and conferences, and other items not covered by the library’s regular budget.
