Welcome to the Friends of the North Carolina Library for the Blind and Physically Handicapped

Susan King, PresidentFriends of the North Carolina Library for the Blind and Physically Handicapped (FNCLBPH) is a non-profit organization consisting of citizens, volunteers, and patrons all interested in supporting the library and the services it provides. We passionately support the mission of the Library by providing financial support to augment the state and federal funding received by the library. In many ways, the Friends bring extra help when it’s needed most. The Friends understand the importance of literacy for all blind children and adults in the state and take every possible measure to make sure anyone who wants to read can read.

Friends are the volunteers who serve with passion instead of for paychecks. Friends are what make this country and its citizens great. Friends are organized and raise the funds we need to fulfill our mission. Friends are fun. Friends are the icing on the cake, the shoulder to lean on, and the people you turn to when you’re in need. You can rely on a friend!
