Our members receive a subscription to our newsletter. Membership forms are available in every newsletter and at the library or you may click MEMBERSHIP FORM for a printable version.
We meet on the fourth Monday of every month (except July and December) at 7:30pm. in the library. Meetings are open to the public.
The Friends of the Library produce a monthly newsletter. You can now choose to be notified by email when the newsletter is posted rather than receive a paper copy. The newsletter includes upcoming activities, minutes from the monthly meeting, town news and lists of new books and other materials at the Library. Check the What’s happening? tab for a link to read the newsletter.
The Friends sponsor and run a number of activities. Our annual book sale is held in conjunction with the town’s Spring Gala celebration in mid-May. We purchase museum passes for use by library patrons (Check the Services page for information on the museum passes.) We sponsor the Childrens’ Summer Reading Program, Teen Times, Books for Babies, Murder Mystery Night, Adult Craft Nights, special programs of interest, an annual cookie swap, programs by the New Hampshire Humanities Council and many other activities and events.
