The Friends of the Hamilton East Public Library is a non-profit organization that supports the library through fundraising and advocacy. The Friends promotes increased knowledge and understanding of the library’s resources and fosters public support and cooperation for the necessary development of library services in our community. The Friends seek to maintain and enhance the essential library services offered to the citizens of Noblesville and Fishers.
