The Public is Invited …

… to the Friends Annual Meeting on Wednesday, May 20, at 4:30PM. We’ll be recapping last year’s accomplishments and considering what the way forward might look like for the coming year. In particular, we’ll be discussing and voting on the 2020-2021 budget.

The meeting will be held by conference call. If you’d like to “attend,” write to us at, with Attn: Joyce Marcel in the subject line. Joyce will contact you with the code needed and procedures to connect with us.

“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).


  • Libraries are for everyone.
