The library has a beautiful outdoor patio area built as an Eagle Scout project in 2011. Cub Scout Pack 610 recently raised funds and gathered donations to build us two picnic tables. We would like to add four outdoor Adirondack chairs to the outdoor area as well. We only need to raise $85 to purchase four plastic chairs. Help us raise some pennies to make this happen! We have a penny collection at the main circulation desk at the library. We have raised funds for one chair already!

So who are the Friends of the Library in Pelham?
The Friends are an all-volunteer, non-profit organization that has been providing support services to the library since 1976. Our mission is to promote understanding and appreciation for the services and programs the library offers. We actively seek fundraising opportunities so we may sponsor programs and help to support new library services, programs, technologies, and special presenters the library could not normally afford with their limited budget.
