100% Volunteer Powered
We provide many opportunities for volunteers of all ages, interests and abilities to support the library.
Financial Support for the Library
We support the library's offerings and add other programs and events. Our fundraising efforts include book sales and apple crisp.
The Friends of the Library was formed to offer community members an enjoyable way to support our wonderful library. Our all-volunteer team works to hold enrichment activities, offer speakers and raise funds to enhance the library's budget. Whether you are a student or a senior citizen or somewhere in between, we would love to have you join us.

ELL Conversation Circles
Our second year of ELL Conversation Circles has begun. We will be welcoming back past students and greeting new participants.
Our program is designed to provide an opportunity for English As Second Language (ELL) Learners to practice vocabulary, pronunciation, and grammar in a fun, comfortable, laid back environment. Each Conversation Circle will use guided conversations and real life situations to build language confidence.
All level of learners are encouraged to participate.
Our first Conversation Circle will be led by Janet Fannon. Janet is a volunteer instructor who has extensive professional experience through the Jewish Vocational Services of Boston. She has experience with beginner and intermediate adult students.
The focus of this first gathering will be to give participants a chance to experience a Conversation Circle. It will also give us an opportunity to learn about you and how we can meet your needs.
Future Conversation Circles will meet on Thursdays at 2:30.
If you have any questions, please email Janet Fannon
