     Friends of the Edgartown Public Library

Friends of the Edgartown Free Public Library is an association of volunteers who support the Library and its programs to promote the use of the Library as a valuable and vital community resource.

The Friends hold their meetings at 10:30 a.m. on the first Friday of the month at the Edgartown Library.

When you visit the library, please make sure to take a look at the new keepsake book, The Edgartown Library, 1891-2016: A Brief History of the Library and Its Friends. This book, filled with colorful illustrations, was produced by the Friends. Copies are available at the library's front desk for $24 each. Library book bags are also available for sale for $15 each. All funds raised support library programming.

Our library is a vibrant and welcoming place for all and we want to do our best to help keep it that way. Our meetings are open to all who want to join and pay our minimal dues of $25 per year.  Even if you feel that you cannot participate as an active member, you can signify your support by donating to our organization. 

ANNUAL MEETING DATE: Thursday, June 29th @ 5pm in the Program Room at the Library. All are welcome!

During the past year, we've celebrated the opening of our new library, and this past March marked the completion of its first full year of service. The library staff have been at the heart of this marvelous transition in Edgartown's community life. They have been invited to our annual meeting to share a few of their observations and insights, reflecting on their first days and months of serving the public in this brand new, state of the art facility.

You may become a Friend of the Library at any time. Dues are $25 a year.

To contact the Friends, please go to  CONTACT US  and write the word FRIENDS in your message.  We'll make sure it gets to the right person.
