The Friends of the Public Library of Cincinnati and Hamilton County is a non-profit organization dedicated to helping the Library make information and knowledge accessible to the communities it serves. The Friends purchases special library materials and equipment, and sponsors numerous programs throughout the year. Funds are generated by memberships, book and shop sales, and gifts and grants. Fifty Years of Friends, by Bob Vitz, “documents the journey of a fledgling organization that started in 1957 and has evolved into a dedicated group of civic-minded individuals determined to make a difference in the community on behalf of the Library that they cherish and love.”
