Friends of the Library

About the Friends

Community support for library services in Southern Pines spans more than 100 years. From the King's Daughters Library founded in 1899, to the Southern Pines Library Association in 1922, and finally the Southern Pines Public Library in 1958, the community has recognized that the public library nurtures a love of reading and a quest for knowledge and life-long learning that is so vital to all its citizens.

While basic funding comes from local tax dollars, support from Friends of Southern Pines Public Library enables the library to provide additional programs and resources that enhance the quality of service to the community, such as multiple copies of high demand books, summer reading programs, and adult discussion programs.


Please contact the Library to receive a membership donation form.
