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 and Projects – 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 and summer reading prizes. Our most recent project was the Sarah M. Moore Memorial Nook in honor of our FNPL board member and long-time library volunteer.
