You can support the Heritage Public Library in several ways. Our Friends of HPL help with fundraising and special projects. Our teen volunteers serve on the Teen Advisory Group (TAG), creating and assisting in youth programs. Other volunteers assist with various library duties, including tutoring and special projects. The library depends on our volunteers, and on the support of donations, both monetary and in materials.
