PLEASE CONSIDER HELPING THE FRIENDS OF PEABODY MEMORIAL LIBRARY WITH A FEW HOURS OF YOUR TIME.

It is with great concern that the Friends of the Library now finds itself at a serious juncture and will not be able to continue without more help from the community. We desperately need more active members in order to survive as an organization. The Friends of Peabody Memorial Library was established in December, 2006 - a decade ago - at a time when the library was in much need of help. In the ensuing years as an active 501c (3) charitable organization, the Friends’ have assisted the library in many ways. Perhaps most importantly, Friends’ have provided the funds for programs, services and needed equipment which would not have been possible given the library’s limited financial resources. Some of these items include: ALL CHILDREN'S PROGRAMS – Christmas, Easter, Halloween, Summer and Winter Reading, Storytime, Bess the Book Bus and more. EQUIPMENT - such as new and replacement computers, laptops, IPads, printers; APOLLO - the automated card catalog program; the Maine Infonet Download library subscription, a projector and screen for showing movies, an outside bookdrop, NEW BOOKS as well as magazine and Bangor Daily News subscriptions and much more. The community - especially our youngsters – benefits from these programs, none of which are funded with your tax dollars. A core group of active Friends’ members have consistently worked each year to raise these funds while the annual membership drive has also provided a portion of the funding. The group of active members has continued to shrink to the point that it can no longer undertake the type of fundraising done in the past. There are currently not enough members willing to serve as officers necessary to lead the organization going forward. The library will not be able to provide the same level of programs and services without the Friends’ financial backing. If you or someone you know may be interested in joining our Friends of the Library, please message the library on FB, email: peabodylibrarian@peabody.lib.me.us, call us at 207-497-3003, or just stop by the library.
