This Holiday Season we wish you and your families health and happiness.  The Friends greatly appreciate your support over the past year.  Because of people like you, we were able to raise over $14,000 to help support the library and pay for amazing adult and children’s programs.  Thank you so much! 

As you purchase holiday gifts, consider ways you can do so while supporting our beloved library. 

  • Did you know that Amazon donates a portion of their sales to charitable organizations?  When you select us on Smile.Amazon.com  as your charity, Amazon will donate 0.5% of your purchases to the Friends! 
  • Tons of books and DVDs in mint condition are on sale in our Book Sale Room for $1.00 or $2.00 each or $5.00 for a bag of books.  
  • Newbury hats for $20.00 and boat flags in sizes small  $35.00), medium ($50.00) and large ($65.00) are for sale in our Book Sale Room.
  • There ONLY one Friends of the Newbury Town Library tote bag ($12.00)  left.  HURRY!

Have a safe and wonderful Holiday and a very Happy New Year!
