Friends of the Hennepin County Library

Library supporters can make financial donations to the Friends of the Hennepin County Library. As the fundraising partner for Hennepin County Library, the Friends help build awareness, appreciation, and support for our world-class library.

When you invest in your library, you invest in the knowledge, equity, and empowerment of all residents. Together, Friends of the Hennepin County Library and Hennepin County Library envision a library that ensures every person has the opportunity and resources to read, engage, graduate, work, and learn.

Donating books and other materials

Books can be donated at any Hennepin County Library. The library uses book donations to raise funds, working through a third-party vendor or local Friends groups to re-sell donated materials. Donated materials must be free of mold, tears, or other damage.
