Friends of Libby Library

Library “Friends” Background

For more than 200 years “Friends” groups nationwide have served as connecting links between libraries and their communities. They plan educational programs for adults, teens, and children, volunteer at library events, raise funds for special projects and even lobby for local, state and national library legislation.

Maine has approximately 100 “Friends of the Library” groups throughout the state and an active state organization “Friends of Maine Libraries” (FOML) based at the Maine State Library in Augusta. (www.friendsofmainelibraries.org)

Friends of Libby Library was organized in 2005.
