Friends of Chapin Branch Library

Make a Great Library Better

Friends of Chapin Branch Library is a nonprofit organization, governed by a Board of Trustees, whose mission is to support Chapin Branch Library by raising awareness and financial support. Philanthropic support from our generous donors has enabled Lexington County Public Library to establish innovative programs that have a huge impact on the life of our community. While public funding supports basic library operations, private support helps to ensure a higher level of service both now and in the future. It’s what makes a great library even better.
