Friends of the Library
There are three Friends groups associated with the Rockingham County Public Library: the Friends of the Eden Public Library, the Friends of the Reidsville Public Library, and the Friends of the Western Rockingham County Libraries.

Donations and Gifts
The library does accept gifts of personal property such as art, portraits, photographs, antiques, and other objects.. Such gifts are subject to approval by the Library Board of Trustees prior to acceptance. The library does not appraise gifts for income tax purposes.
Books and other library materials may be donated to the library. Donated materials must conform to the general selection criteria of the library and be in good physical condition. If a donated item duplicates a volume already in the collection or does not meet the library’s general selection criteria then the donated item will be placed in a Friends of the Library book sale.
Monetary donations given in support of the purchase of library materials will be accepted and the funds placed into the library’s Memorials fund. Both books and money may be given to the library in honor or memory of a particular person. The donor is encouraged to speak with library staff before making a donation.
