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.

FHSL Receives AT Grant

Friends of Hot Springs Library Receives $3000 AT Grant

Friends of Hot Springs Library are pleased to have recently been named a recipient of the North Carolina Appalachian Trail License Plate Grant Program. This $3,000 grant will support the acquisition of the new Hot Springs library building and the provision of services and education to A.T. hikers and community members alike. 
The town  of Hot Springs is unique in that it is right on the Appalachian Trail. And so is its library – in its new location at 170 Bridge Street. Hikers frequently stop into the library to use our high speed wi-fi, browse a book, use a computer or make purchases in The Trail Book Nook (our used book shop). 
FHSL, our staff and patrons appreciate the ATC’s support and recognition of the positive relationship between A.T. hikers, Hot Springs Library and residents of this great community. 

Online Donation ~ Grow Our Hot Springs Library Campaign

Donate Button with Credit Cards

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:
