Started in 1945, The Friends of the Saint Paul Public Library is a nonprofit, community membership organization dedicated to supporting the Saint Paul Public Library. Our members are advocates for a strong Library. We believe that ours is the best Library system of its size in the country, and that it deserves an engaged organization that represents the community’s interests on Library issues.
Our mission is:
To increase the use of the Library through public awareness and cultural programming;
To advocate for strong public funding of the Library; and
To provide private funding to enhance Library services.
