about us

The Friends of Forbes Library is an independent, non-profit organization whose mission is to promote the interests of the Forbes Library so that its services, activities, and facilities may benefit the public to the greatest extent possible. The Friends provide financial support to programs, projects, events and materials whose costs cannot be met from the library’s annual operating budget.

Friends of Forbes funds its activities through an annual membership drive, a citywide tour of private gardens every June, a wine tasting at the library in the fall and other fundraisers. The Friends sponsor children’s and young adult programs, staff computer training, concerts and lecture series, purchase reference materials, support Special Collections preservation, and make annual contributions to the library Book Fund.
