Every library needs support, assistance, and input from the community in order to respond to its changing needs - that's what FRIENDS are for.
The FRIENDS is an association of people like you who realize the vital need for community library services, programs, and materials. There is no limit to what an enthusiastic, dedicated group of FRIENDS can provide. The purpose of this organization shall be to promote the library, its resources and services, encourage the use of the library by all ages through promotion of innovative programs, and to provide funding for added resources, services , and equipment not made available through the normal budget or capital outlay appropriated by the town.
