Friends of Harrison Memorial Library
Friends of Harrison Memorial Library is a non-profit volunteer organization
established in 1972 to provide support for library activities and help purchase needed
books and equipment.
The major fundraiser of this group is the wonderful book sale, held for three days
during the month of August in Carmel.

In addition to the fundraiser, the Friends promote awareness of the library in our
