Next Chapter Society

Next Chapter Society members of the Nashville Public Library Foundation play a critical role in sustaining and enhancing the Library’s award-winning programs that change the lives of more than 600,000 Nashvillians a year. These programs help children and adults learn vital reading skills, inspire teens to explore technology in state-of-the-art spaces and bring the community together to hear award-winning authors, enjoy visual art exhibits and hear live music.
