Friends of the Patrick Henry Memorial Library in Brookneal

Friends of the Patrick Henry Library

The Friends of the Patrick Henry Memorial Library (PHML) are supporters of PHML programs and services. Recently, the Friends have provided the library with paint for the new Children’s Literacy Room. They are fundraising to replace the carpet and purchase cabinets. In addition, the Friends regularly provide funding for new books and materials such as posters, bookmarks, and prizes for Summer and Winter Reading and supply refreshments for the annual Santa event, Preschool Programs, and evening Family programs.  Frequently the Friends themselves volunteer their time to come and work at the programs serving refreshments, doing crafts, etc. They also sponsor a needlework group each Thursday night at 6:30 pm at the library.
