Be a Friend of the Library

The Friends of the North Richland Hills Library is a group of civic-minded citizens who recognize that libraries can change lives and ignite infinite possibilities within our community.

The Friends of the NRH Library is an all-volunteer, non-profit organization who advocates for the library within the community and help raise funds to support, enhance, and expand public library services. They host book sales, cultural programs, and author events at the Library.

The Friends of the NRH Library financially support the Library through sponsorships of Library events including:

  • Behind the Book Author Series
  • Mid-Cities Teen Book Fest
  • The Mayor’s Summer Reading Club
  • NRH Authors and Arts
