Thank you, Friends!

💝 The Gates Public Library gets by with a lot of help from our Friends! Established in 1986, our Friends of the Gates Public Library has given nearly $1,000,000 over the years to fund children’s programming, provide new furniture, contribute funding for new and emerging technology, and help support staff training. In addition, the Friends have rallied countless times to advocate for adequate library funding.

October 16-22, 2022 is the 17th annual National Friends of Libraries Week, and it’s the perfect opportunity for the administration and trustees of the Gates Public Library to give our Friends a big shout out for all they do to make a difference for us every single day.

We know the Friends are always looking for new members and volunteers. They have so much fun while working to make our community better. Pick up a Membership Form from the Circulation Desk to get early day access to our Book Sales. Want to become a volunteer? Be sure to email to apply!

Joining the Friends of the Library is a terrific way to make new friends of your own, and give back to our town and make its library even better!
