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.

Proceeds from the Friends of Thayer Public Library fundraisers and book sales fund projects such as:

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.

Capital Projects – During the last two years, the Friends were able to fund emergency repairs to the elevator, a new security system, the lovely gardens surrounding the parking area, landscaping services and gutter repairs.  This year we will be helping with the new required lighting changes.  As always, we provide direct support for programs for children, teens and adults.  The children's section of the library will be the next place where updating and renovations will be done and we are hoping to be able to contribute to this effort.
