“The Friends” in the News

The Friends of Brooks Memorial Library play an instrumental role in funding many library services that are unusual for a community our size.

The Commons recently ran a story highlighting several of these services, with special mention of the film service Kanopy, which provides free streaming of indie films, Hollywood films, British mysteries, foreign films and a host of other titles. All it takes is a library card!

Thanks to The Commons and especially Richard Henke for the fine write-up (accessible here).
