What do you mean free? Don't we pay taxes and late fees?

The word "free" is in our name because we were started in 1902 as a "free association" library - a non-profit with the mandate to serve all the members of the community. I am very attached to that part of our name because it reminds us that we are here to serve anyone who walks in the door, regardless of their age, economic status, belief systems or appearance. As a practical matter, it also keeps us from being confused with libraries in other towns that have similarly spelled names but strange ideas about pronunciation.

We Love Our Volunteers

There are lots of ways to be part of the library. We rely on volunteers to work the front desk, run the book sales, present programs, help with projects, put on events and more. If you have a skill, we can probably use it. Come in, call or email to get started.

Libraries invented the sharing economy.
