A Friend is someone who supports the Spring Hill Library and promotes the Library wherever and whenever possible.
We volunteer at a variety of Library programs.
We help the Library staff with various tasks.
We show support for the Library at City Hall meetings.
We raise money to support Library programs and to purchase books and other items for the Library.

We Help the Library!
Have you ever…
  • Borrowed a DVD from the Library?
  • Used one of those handy carts and baskets?
  • Participated in the Summer Reading Program?
  • Curled up on a couch in the Children’s Library?
  • Helped a child use the Early Literacy Stations?
No matter which services of the Library you use, you have very likely used something that was purchased by the Friends! Over the past several years, the Friends have contributed thousands of dollars toward providing furniture, wall hangings and window blinds, computer software, storage and display cabinets, and many other items for the Library.

Quarterly Book Sales
Quarterly Book Sales are held in the Library’s multi-purpose room from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. on the last Saturday of January, April, July, and October. Most hardcover books are $1, and paperbacks and children’s books are 50 cents. New releases, DVDs, audiobooks, homeschool items, and other materials are available at bargain prices, too. We don’t save leftover items from one sale to the next, so every sale offers a fresh new selection.

Permanent Book Sale
Shop for great deals every time you visit the Library! The Permanent Book Sale is in the nook near the west entrance. The selection changes frequently, so check back often to see what’s new.

Amazon Storefront
Visit our Amazon Storefront to see our selection of special books that you won’t find in our other Book Sales.

Buy a Decal
Buy a removable decal for your vehicle or anywhere else you want to proclaim your love for the Spring Hill Library!  Decals are available at the circulation desk for $3.  Proceeds from the decal sales go toward furnishing the new library that is being planned.

We Love Donations!
The next time you clean off your bookshelves, think of us! The Spring Hill Public Library welcomes gifts of new and used books, audio recordings, DVDs, and similar materials. 

Let’s Meet!
Why not show up at a meeting sometime? You don’t have to join or volunteer for anything; just come and meet the other Friends and see what we’re all about. The Friends meet at the Library on the fourth Thursday of odd-numbered months (third Thursday in November) at 5:30 pm.  You can confirm the meeting dates and times by calling the Library at 931-486-2932 or by checking the Library’s online calendar.

Join Us!
Are you ready to join the Friends? Annual membership dues are just $10 per person or $15 per couple or family. Membership applications can be found inside the Friends brochures at the Library.  Just complete the application, tear it off, and bring it with your payment to the circulation desk.  You will receive confirmation of your membership once your application has been processed.
