Friends of the Pittsboro Memorial Library

Pittsboro Memorial
                    Library

The Friends of the Pittsboro Memorial Library, Inc., is a support organization which fosters interest in and use of the Library. We raise money for a variety of Library-related programs and needs which are not met through traditional County support.

Thank you for your interest in and support of the Pittsboro Memorial Library!


"For the growth and development of the human mind
For the exploration of far away lands and planets
For the opportunity for research and study
For the sheer joy and pleasure that reading brings
We dedicate this library."

November 10, 1974
