The mission of the Friends of the Kingsport Public Library is to support, promote and enrich the Kingsport Public Library in providing services and opportunities to the community.
Friends of the Kingsport Public Library – Membership Application (PDF)
Started in 1997, this fund is “to provide a growing source of income to supplement the Friends’ support of the Library, provide services to those less fortunate, and make our excellent Library even better.” You may make a donation in memory of a loved one or in honor of someone who enjoys the Library.
Donations may be immediate, pledged over time or bequeathed in a will by means of cash, stocks, bonds, mutual funds or trusts.
The library itself can receive cash donations to purchase materials in memory of or in honor of someone, or to commemorate a special occasion: e.g. birthdays, anniversaries, etc. The gift will be used to purchase books. A card of notification will be sent. For a gift of $15 or more, a book will be purchased and a book plate added acknowledging the gift and naming the person for whom the book is a memorial. For more information, call 224-2588.
