Friends of Hot Springs Library

A Community Organization Supporting the Hot Springs, NC Library

Who We Are ~ Friends of Hot Springs Library

Friends of Hot Springs Library, or FHSL, is an all volunteer organization devoted to supporting the Hot Springs Library through fundraising, advocacy, author and educational events, building maintenance and community participation.  Some of us volunteer our time for library programs, events and maintenance. Some attend monthly meetings to plan upcoming and ongoing events and programs. Many of our Hot Springs Friends of the Library contribute their support through yearly membership dues and donations.  We work together and do what we can to help keep our library a vibrant and lively part of the Hot Springs community.  We encourage you to join us in our efforts.

FHSL meet on the 4th Tuesday of the month at 5:00pm at the Hot Springs Library.  All are welcome to attend.

OCLC, Online Computer Library Center/WebJunction, a nonprofit cooperative organization, dedicated to the public purposes of furthering access to the world’s information and reducing information costs, in cooperation with ARSL, The Association for Rural and Small Libraries has awarded Madison Co. Library a Small Libraries Create Smart Spaces Grant Award for the Hot Springs Library.  Only 15 grants were awarded in the United States!  This grant will help “guide and support our library as we reimagine and reconfigure library space to support socially engaging and active learning programming that addresses a defined community need.  These libraries were chosen based on a well-articulated understanding of their communities, commitment to championing economic and education success, and an enthusiasm for bringing the voice of community members to their planning process”.  Congratulations and Thank You to Madison County Library Director, Melanie Morgan, for this wonderful award!

We have opened the doors on our NEW HOT SPRINGS LIBRARY!!!  We are so excited to be able to share this beautiful new library and look forward to a great future of programming, events, and the wonderful spirit and friendship that libraries bring to a community.
We continue to ask for your monetary support to help us retire our five year mortgage and make this great location ours alone.  All operating expenses will be covered in the regular budget, so we can focus our efforts on debt retirement.  Every donation goes directly and fully to that goal.
With your support, we will reach our goal. No amount is too small (or too large!).  Every dollar helps get us closer.  You can mail a check or donate online using PayPal or a major credit card.
Prefer to mail a check?  Great!  Make your check out to: 
  • Friends of Hot Springs Library   
  • Mail to: P.O.Box 175  
  • Hot Springs, NC 28743.  

Friends of Hot Springs Library is a chapter of Madison County Friends of the Library, Inc., a 501(c)(3) nonprofit corporation. Your entire donation is tax deductible. We so much appreciate your generosity and your caring about our Library.

We will be celebrating our grand opening in March 2017. Stay tuned for details as well as future fundraising events to support our efforts. Please share this website address with your friends and family.  Thank you for supporting the Friends of Hot Springs Library!
