Friends of SNHL & Jr. Friends of SNHL

Great Friends Make Great Libraries

Join the Friends of the Shaler North Hills Library today!  SNHL always needs new friends. This group of dedicated people actively works to make SNHL a better place.  They annually donate over $20,000 through fundraisers, membership dues and raffles.  ALL funds go towards library programming and the purchase of special items the library could not otherwise afford.  As a special thank for being a Friend, you will receive a special invitation to preview the book sales. Please complete our form to join us today!
