For more than 30 years, the Friends of the Louis Bay 2nd Library and Community Center has successfully worked to stimulate public awareness and encourage use of the Library as an informational, educational and cultural center for people of all ages. The Friends is duly incorporated as a 501(c)(3) charitable organization, and membership is open to all Hawthorne and area residents.

The Friends of the Library aid and support the Library’s development through numerous fund-raising and community activities including the annual Adopt-A-Magazine program, the on-going Book Sale in the small meeting room, concerts, events and theatrical programs for adults and children, and scholarships for area students who reside in Hawthorne.

Meetings are held on the first Monday of every month, with the exception of July and August, at 7 the library's small meeting room. All are welcome.
