Support your Hometown Library by joining the Friends of the Library!
A small group of “FRIENDS” who shared a common interest in books formed the Friends of the Helen B. Hoffman Plantation Library on October 22, 1970. Their mission was to “promote and foster the use and growth of the Plantation Library.” A by-laws committee was chosen, and its recommendations were discussed and approved on November 19, 1970. Charter membership closed on June 1, 1971 with 57 members.
The organizers chose the second Monday of each month from September through May for the monthly meeting, which is held at 9:30 AM in the Library.
