About the Library: Friends of the Library

The Friends of Thayer Public Library is a non-profit organization whose mission is to support the library through  cultural and educational activities. The Friends fund continuing improvement of library facilities and programs.  The group also serves to ensure gifts and memorials go directly to support the library.

Friends Concert Series – Enjoy Sunday afternoon concerts in the library's Logan Auditorium. 

Programs for children, teens and adults – Every year the Friends sponsor special programs to enrich your library experience.

Used Book Sale – Purchase gently used books at bargain prices at the ongoing book sale on the Lower Level of the library. Please consider making a tax-deductible donation of books, DVDs, CDs, or audio books.

Friends Café – Relax with a drink and snack and even some quiet conversation in the Friends' Cafe on the Main Level of the Library.

Gardens - Take the time to  enjoy the beautiful flower gardens the Friends planted along Washington Street.

Annual Staff and Volunteer Luncheon – A wonderful opportunity to show appreciation to everyone who works in our library.

Capital Projects – The Friends were instrumental in raising funds for the new library building 15 years ago. More recently, the Friends raised funds to nearly double the size of the parking lot as well as new flooring and renovations on the lower level and the main level. Future projects include renovations to the Children's Room.
