 A Little About Us…

The Norwood Public Library has been serving the Norwood Community since 1979 and The Friends of the Library have been supporting the Library since 1995. The Friends became the Lone Cone Library Foundation in 2017.

The Mission of The Foundation is to support quality library service in the community through fundraising, volunteerism and serving as advocates for the library and its programs to the pubic, to preserve and enrich the communities of Norwood, Redvale and the surrounding area of Wright’s Mesa.pubic, to preserve and enrich the communities of Norwood, Redvale and the surrounding area of Wright’s Mesa.

The Friends of the Library has been bringing the annual Luncheon and Fashion Show to the community for over 14 years now. Under the new name of the Lone Cone Library Foundation, this tradition will continue.

The Foundation supports the Library in a variety of ways, and we would like you to be a part of it!

Residents and visitors alike can enjoy the privileges of information access, entertainment, and education – which our library so cheerfully provides.

In this modern technological age, libraries must be able to offer new types of information, more programs and more services than in the past.
