The Friends of the Hamden Library is a nonprofit group that supports and promotes the library. They also offer many stimulating programs for the public. Donations from the Friends make possible programs, equipment and materials not available through the library budget. The Friends also sponsor the annual Thornton Wilder Writing Competition.

The Friends raise funds by selling used books donated by the public in the Friends’ Bookstore, located on the lower level of the Miller Memorial Central Library.
