The Friends of the Library was established in 1969. At that time, the library was headquartered in the Carnegie Building on Goundry Street. The Friends spearheaded the effort to turn the caretaker’s cottage, Little House, into a meeting facility.

The group’s stated purpose was “to broaden the [library] services offered to the community and to help promote a fuller understanding of the library’s functions.” With the move to Meadow Drive, this goal still holds. The Friends also assist the library financially and by volunteering.

Meetings are open to all members and are held on the second Monday of the month, September through June, at the library.
