Special Note, May 2020: The friends will not be holding a Memorial Day Booksale this year due to COVID-19. They will also be postponing their annual appeal letter.
The Friends of the Newbury Public Library augment the library budget with funds for the purchase of books, supplies, and equipment. Most programs, audiobooks, DVDs, and other library activities are funded solely by the Friends of the Newbury Public Library.
The Friends of the Newbury Public Library meet quarterly during the year at the library.
Examples of past support
Programs and purchases the Friends have supported in the past include, but are not limited to: various adult programs, including cooking demonstrations and wildlife talks; children’s summer reading programs; the library’s DVD collection; welcome packages for newborn babies; and much, much more.
The Friends run two book sales throughout the year: the Saturday of Memorial Day weekend & Old Home Day.
