If books and WiFi and recorded books and storytelling hours and DVDs
and interlibrary loan and a quiet place to read the paper are important to you...
You should join the Friends of the Jaffrey Public Library!
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.
Among the efforts funded by the Friends are museum passes and expenses associated with some adult and children's events.
Friends receive a quarterly newsletter. 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 - 5 times a year to plan programs and events.
We hold a large book sale every July in cooperation with TEAM Jaffrey's Riverfest celebration. We also have shelves of books for sale throughout the year in the library's main entryway. Both raise significant funds for the library and provide readers with books at a reduced cost.
The Friends sponsor at least two programs a year for the community, often using speakers from the NH Humanities Council.
The Friends of the Library also support the library staff as needed.
Please Join Us!
Dues are only $10 per year.
Please stop by the main floor desk for a brochure and a membership form.
