About Us

The Friends of the North Hollywood Library (FNHL) is a group of volunteers dedicated to supporting the North Hollywood Regional Branch Library, its patrons and staff, and the community, with roots going back to 1989. In 1990, the FNHL became a recognized 501(c)(3) charitable organization that qualifies as a public charity under IRS Code section 509(a)(2). The FNHL raises funds from tax-deductible donations and book sales, the profits of which go entirely to helping the library accomplish its goal of attracting, informing and educating the community.

We support the library by:
• holding fundraising events such as book sales
• sponsoring and staffing library events
• helping the library provide more books and better service beyond what is possible with their basic funding
• helping to recruit volunteers

We are self supporting, hold meetings governed by bylaws, have elected officers, and do our own financial reporting. Membership is open to anyone interested in helping to enhance library services in the community.
