New Library Building Project

Our first goal of the friends group is to focus our energy on building a new library.  Raising between one and three million dollars through fund raising and grants for a new library building.

We are in need of more board directors, volunteers, grant writers, and fund raisers to join the Friends of the Hammond Community Library. Please contact us for ways to get involved and help bring this revitalization project to life.

Virtual Programs

The library is open for visits and curbside pickup.  However we still need to limit the number of people for gatherings.  For now we are keeping all programs virtual.   This is to keep everyone safe and you can enjoy a craft evening in the comfort of your own home, while still seeing everyone and crafting and learning. Sign up for a virtual program. When you sign up you will receive a kit for the program and a link for the program when it happens. Programs are for all ages. Sign up today!!!
