Friends of Abbot Public Library

FOAL2The Friends of Abbot Public Library is an organization dedicated to the support of the Abbot Public Library. The group raises money to pay for library programs and to provide services to the public. We also provide funds for occasional unexpected expenses.

Signature programs include free or discounted passes to area museums and the operation of an in-library bookstore.

Our dedicated volunteers contribute a great deal of time and energy to Library activities. We run the Sail Away Book Shoppe, sell used magazines in the library, host Sunday afternoon Fireside events in the winter and hold periodically scheduled book sales.
Beyond the volunteer group stands a large and loyal group of contributors, who support all of our work and show their community support for the library.

We invite you to join us as a member. Memberships provide us with funds to finance our library projects and a base of volunteers to organize and execute library events.

There are two ways to join:

  1. Pick up a membership application envelope at the library and return it with your tax-deductible contribution,
  2. Print the membership application and mail it to us with your membership dues.

Membership dues are $15 for seniors (65+) and $25 for other individuals or households, or you can make donations of any size.

If you join now, your membership term will cover the remainder of 2022 plus 2023.
