“Libraries take us on journeys and open us up to new worlds.”              – Josh Gad from the movie,  Artemis Fowl

Dear Friends,

Libraries are being left behind in Congress’s pandemic response.  When libraries are left behind, our communities are left behind.  We need you to take action and urge Congress to provide emergency relief for libraries.

There is currently no dedicated support for America’s libraries in new COVID-19 relief packages – though healthcare, small businesses, and numerous other sectors have been included.  Representattive Andy Levin (D-MI) and Senator Jack Reed (D_RI) are sponsoring legislation calling for $2 billion in emergency recovery funding for America’s libraries through the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS)  The Library Stabilization Fund Act would allow libraries across the country to retain staff, maintain services, and safely keep communities connected and informed. 

Please  TAKE ACTION and urge our Senators and Representatives to cosponsor this legislation and keep #LibrariesStrong.


We are still able to sell our Newbury hats and flags.  If you are interested, please email us at friendsofnewburytownlibrary@gmail.com and we will make arrangements for curbside pickup at the library since the library is still closed to patrons. 

Newbury Hats – $20.00

          Small (12” X 18”) – $35.00

We look forward to seeing you once again at the Newbury Town Library.
