The Friends of Hermosa Beach Public Library is an all-volunteer non-profit organization committed to generate community interest and support for the library. We provide funding for education and literacy programs, such as the Summer Reading Program and Smarty Pants Storytime.
Since our launch in 1959, the volunteers at Hermosa Beach Friends of the Library have worked tirelessly to promote our cause. We are fortunate to have volunteers from all walks of life who bring their unique expertise and resources into everything we do. This is what enables us to achieve our goals year after year.
While there is always more that can be done, there is no doubt that we are making a significant impact. We don’t measure our success through just facts and figures, but through happy faces and heartwarming feedback. See how you can become part of the difference.
