Friends of Hackney Library

The Friends of Hackney Library began in the early 1990s and soon afterward sponsored an Author Dinner and Lecture Series, which has become an established and much anticipated tradition within the Barton and Wilson communities. This historic organization provides the community with an opportunity to meet and interact with current authors. Over the years, the Friends organization has contributed financially to the Library and made it possible to purchase equipment and materials to help the Library grow in its mission
