Friends of the Montgomery Town Library is a new organization created to increase funding opportunities for our community library. Currently the main sources of income are from the town and the annual silent auction. The “Friends” organization is applying for non-profit status which will qualify us for many grant opportunities which the trustees cannot receive as a Town Library. Membership and donations are also tax deductible.
Our goals are to:
- Raise money above the operating budget
- Provide additional programming
- Help with the library “wish” list
- Build community support for the library and awareness of all that it provides.
Libraries need “Friends” and we have found that the most successful libraries have a strong “Friends” organization behind them. We would like you to consider joining us and becoming a member of “Friends of the Montgomery Town Library.” Your support is vital to our success.
Friends applications can be obtained at the library, on bulletin boards around town, or printed from this link: Friends of the Montgomery Town Library Form.
