If you love your library, be a Friend!
 

The Friends of the Library is a nonprofit group that works to strengthen, promote, and support the Jaffrey Public Library. It is committed to helping the Library meet the diverse needs of the community and open doors to lifelong learning and discovery for everyone.

Thanks to the generosity of the Friends of the Jaffrey Public Library, other institutions, and patrons, the library is able to offer a number of museum passes. Please call the library to find out which passes are available at the current time.

Equally important, membership helps bring quality programs and services to the library. This is a "doing" rather than a "meeting" organization. Our annual meeting in early December features a festive Holiday Tea. An Executive Board, elected annually, meets 4 to 5 times a year to plan programs and events.

Among the efforts funded by the Friends are expenses associated with events. The Friends sponsor at least two programs a year for the community, often using speakers from the NH Humanities Council.

We hold a large book sale every summer, and also have shelves of books for sale throughout the year in the library's main entryway and on the ground floor. Both raise significant funds for the library and provide readers with books at a reduced cost.

The Friends of the Library support the library staff as needed. Friends also receive a quarterly newsletter.

Please join us! Dues are only $15.00 per year. Please stop by the main floor desk for a brochure and a membership form. For more information, please call the library at (603) 532-7301.
