Friends of the Library

The Friends of the Parchment Community Library are men and women who value the services the library provides to our community, and who participate in fund-raising events to support library programs.


In recent years, the Friends have raised several thousand dollars a year for new equipment, programming, and materials.

Last year, the Friends

  • renewed the library's subscription to "Book Page," a monthly publication available to library patrons for free

  • paid for library programming for adults and children, including the Summer Reading Program

  • continued library lawn care & maintenance

  • paid for the Library Staff Appreciation Luncheon

Everyone is welcome to join the Friends!
