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 our Pullman community is experiencing significant growth.
What We Do
Thanks to generous support from members, special gifts, and bequests, the Friends are able to provide funding for many of your favorite library activities and programs for children, teens, and adults.
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 Summer Reading Program for children, adult computer classes, guest speakers, and much more.
Community Literacy – Our Hospital Literacy Program provides newborns at Pullman Regional Hospital with their first book and library card. FNPL also supports Pullman kindergarten registration day, providing a free book to each child entering school.
