To promote public awareness of the Hockessin Library and its educational and recreational services. To assist the library in determining and responding to the needs of the greater Hockessin community.
The first library in Hockessin was founded in 1934 and was located in the former "Crossroads" School building at the corner of Valley Road and Lancaster Turnpike. It operated as The Lamborn Library with an all-volunteer staff and, starting in 1961, visits from the New Castle County Bookmobile. Responding to the need for increased library services, The Friends of the Hockessin Library was formed in 1975 as a non-profit, tax-exempt organization to promote the library. The Friends successfully campaigned for county funding, and the Hockessin Public Library was established in 1977. Since that time the Friends has supported the expansion of the original building, construction of a new building which opened in 1994 and an expansion to that building in 2008 in addition to providing funding for materials, equipment and programs.
