The Friends of the Bedford Library (the “Friends”) is looking for new board members and volunteers. The Friends is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit that raises money to fund items on the Library’s wish list through membership dues and an annual pie sale held the weekend before Thanksgiving, and donations made at the Sunday Concert series.
The goal of the Friends is to promote high quality library services as well as host the Sunday Concerts which run from September - May, provide the museum pass to the New England Aquarium, provide items for the Children’s Summer Reading program and other items for the Library that are not in its budget, such as the filament used by the MakerBot, the Library’s 3D printer. Membership to the Friends is open to anyone interested in supporting the library and its programs.
Currently we are looking for a Treasurer, Membership, and Marketing Board members, as well as volunteers. If you would be interested in volunteering or joining our Board, please email us at FriendsofNHBedfordLibrary@gmail.com or stop by one of our Board meetings, which are held at the Library in the New Hampshire Room on the second Tuesday of each month at 6:30 p.m. from September through May.
About the Friends
The Friends of the Bedford Library is a volunteer group that provides supplementary services and materials to our Library. The Friends host the Sunday Concert Series and our contributions have purchased a Kindle, the trains in the Children's area, and a globe for the children's room.
All that we provide is available for use by all Bedford Public Library cardholders. We have approximately 80 members and we thank you for your support.
Volunteers wanted for the Friends of the Bedford Library
Please consider joining The Friends, a non-profit all volunteer group that devotes its time to supporting the library. We have one fundraiser a year and that is our annual pie (and baked goods) sale held the Saturday before Thanksgiving.
We are seeking volunteers who would be interested in helping out with some of the many services The Friends provide, including: membership drives, museum passes, fundraisers, newsletters, and library book bags.
Meetings are held at the Library at 6:30 p.m. on the second Tuesday of each month, from September through May.
The Friends of the Bedford Library would like to invite you to join our growing organization.
