What is The Friends of the Easton Public Library? 

The Friends of the Easton Public Library is a 501(c)(3) organization made up of local volunteers and members who raise money to help support the library.

Past fundraisers have included participating in the nationwide Library Giving Day in early April; hosting a wine and cheese gathering to kick off the summer with Eastonites old and new; running a fabulous used book sale; and hosting a holiday craft fair and tree lighting in early December.  More events are in the works! 

Recent events have already raised more than $13.5K to support the library for 2022:   in April we raised nearly $4500 as part of the National Library Giving Day campaign, and in June we raised $2K more, as part of our Winetasting fundraiser.  Our book sale garnered $6000. Thank you to the generosity of our wonderful library lovers from all across the town. We are grateful.

All these provide financial support to the library beyond what is allocated in the town's annual budget. In the past year the Friends have given money to support the refurbishment of the patio at the library for community gatherings and fun activities for library patrons, the Summer Reading Program for adults and children alike, the One Book One Town initiative, and the purchase of museum passes for everyone in town to use.
