The library also has a support organization called the Friends of the North Carolina Library for the Blind and Physically Handicapped (FNCLBPH). The Friends work to promote, support, and enhance the library's services through tax deductible membership dues, donations, memorials, and bequests. The Friends sponsor the volunteer recognition events, the Descriptive Video program, and help purchase large print books for the library's collection. They also purchase equipment that enables the library to better serve patrons. For more information check out the Friends website ( or contact the library.
