Wow, how we have grown over the course of the past three years!
The Capital Campaign has brought the Friends of the Library to a level we never could have anticipated:
Not to mention having raised over $930,000 to date for the new Library!
Now that we have the new Library, we need some new blood on our committees- a fresh outlook. Frankly, the hardworking core of the Friends is a little tired!
Our goal is to increase the resources of the Library through programs and ongoing financial support.
You can help by working with us!
We need members on the Development, Event, and Program Committees.
If you are interested, we will be meeting in our Committees on Tuesday, March 4th from 6:30-7:00pm at the Library, followed by the regular monthly meeting.
Please consider joining us this month.
If you cannot attend, and are interested, please contact the person listed below.
We have openings on the following Committees:
Friends of the South Berwick Library meets on the first Tuesday of most months, 6:30 pm, in the conference room at the back of the South Berwick Medical Services building (use parking lot entrance).

Work with us to further our mission:
Library Without Walls: working to raise awareness of our library and its resources by going out into the community, working with other organizations on events, projects, activities.
Capital Campaign: a new library building requires fundraising! Your enthusiasm and dedication to the project are valuable assets to fundraising.
Public Awareness: Spread the word out about our activities and projects.
Events: Large and small.
Volunteer for our regular fundraising activities:
Book Sale: held the second Saturday in May
Strawberry Festival booth: the 4th Saturday in June
Bake Sales: November Election and sometimes at the 2nd Tuesday in June balloting. Make phone calls, bake, staff the table.
Organizational help: There are many details to be attended to which can be done from your home. Like to make phone calls? Have good computer skills? Graphic design? All sorts of things.
Website: The Friends website is easily used, and doesn't require special skills to add information. Our website will be a valuable tool and resource as we work to get a new library building and a volunteer is needed to help with this.
Officers: We are very much in need of people to share the responsibility of guiding the Friends.
