Friends are Volunteers

Friends are the volunteers who serve with passion instead of for paychecks. Friends are what make this country and its citizens great. Friends are organized and raise the funds we need to fulfill our mission. Friends are fun. Friends are the icing on the cake, the shoulder to lean on, and the people you turn to when you’re in need. You can rely on a friend.

Friends of the North Carolina Library for the Blind and Physically Handicapped (FNCLBPH) passionately support the mission of the Library by providing financial support to augment the state and federal funding. In many ways, the Friends bring extra help when it’s needed most. The Friends understand the importance of literacy for all blind children and adults in the state and take every possible measure to make sure anyone who wants to read can read.
