Please consider adding the Friends of the Josiah Carpenter Library to your Amazon Smile account. Amazon will donate a percent of your purchase to the Friends of the Library.

The Friends of the Library have a very important role supporting smooth operations of the library. They supplement the costs of library management by purchasing items the library does not have in the budget, such as furniture, equipment, extra printer paper and toner. They also plan fund raising events, help to buy Children’s story hour supplies and pay speaker/performer honorariums. The Josiah Carpenter Library Friends help to promote early literacy in the community.

Choosing them as your charity of choice will help raise more funds for children’s books.


 We are grateful to people who have give generously of their time to help support the library in a variety of ways. From general management of the book sale room to neatening and straightening our shelves to helping to assist patrons find the right book or information, our volunteers are invaluable!
