Friends of the Library

About the Friends
The Friends is a volunteer nonprofit organization with a simple mission: to promote public awareness of the library and to provide financial support for services and programs beyond the town’s budget. The library depends on the Friends’ financial support for library events, technology, furniture, and staff training. Visit our Facebook page for the latest Friends' news.
