Friends of the Healdsburg Library

  • FOHL

The Friends of the Healdsburg Library supports the Library through donations, proceeds from book sales, and membership dues. Over the past 5 years, the Friends has given over $100,000 in grants to the Library.

The FoHL Board of Directors coordinates the Friends' activities, including all book sales, organization and handling of book donations, and membership outreach. Our goal is to sell donated books to raise money to support the Healdsburg Branch of the Sonoma County Library. With your assistance we purchased the BiblioBike, renovated and maintain the Library Demeter Frog Fountain and all sorts of other enrichments. Thank you for your support!

The Friends' Board meets on the first Tuesday of each month at 4:00 p.m. via Zoom. To attend the meeting, please email:
