Goals of the Friends

The goal of the Friends is to support, coordinate and enhance the activities of
the Library and to stimulate and promote good library service in the community
by doing the following:

  • Working in cooperation with the librarians and the library trustees in support
    of the library

  • Maintaining an association of persons interested in good library service
  • Assisting in development, promotions and completion of library services,
    facilities, programs and community services
  • Soliciting gifts, bequests, endowments and other financial contributions above
    and beyond the library’s annual budget
  • Acting as liaison between the community and the library, and increasing public
    awareness of the library resource
Examples of the Friends support:
  • Sponsorship of the Summer Reading Program and National Library Week
  • Purchase of equipment for the library such as ipads, kindles and a
    3-D printer
  • Purchase of Museum passes: VINS-Vermont Institute of Natural Science, Currier Art Gallery, See Science Center, Museum of Fine Arts-Boston, and The Fells
  • Support the After School Kids Program (ASK)
  • Purchase online services for the library such as Freegal and IndieFlix
  • The Friends sponsor several fund raisers each year which include the Annual
    Appeal in early June, the Pancake Breakfast in July and a Plant Sale in
    May, as well as others. The Friends also sell cookbooks, “A Taste of Sunapee,” which are available for purchase now.
