Mission:

The Friends of the Norwich Public Library will promote the goals of the Library. The Friends will initiate, coordinate and carry out:

  • Community service to encourage Library use and enjoyment
  • Special projects to support continuing education and learning for all patrons of the Library
  • Fundraising to underwrite special Library projects and initiatives.

Some of the projects we have sponsored in the past:

  • First Wednesdays lecture series series
  • Adult book discussion series
  • Summer reading program for children and teens
  • Adult and children’s audiobooks
  • New York Times subscription

Fundraising events sponsored by the Friends of the NPL include:

  • Soup Lunches
  • Annual Mother’s Day Plant Sale
  • Rubber Duckie Race

The Friends meet in the Library on the first Saturday of every month at 10:00 a.m. Everyone is welcome to attend.

We’re always looking for a few good volunteers… What are your interests? Do you have ideas for new fundraisers? Ideas for new library project that we could support? Please contact us for more information.
