Friends of Aram

The Friends of the Aram Public Library was established in 1987 to promote and assist the library. They remain today an active and vibrant group.

The Friends sponsor programs at Aram Library quarterly, conduct a giant book sale every summer, volunteer to help at a variety of library events, make monthly deliveries to residents of area nursing homes, purchase needed items for the Library that are beyond the library budget, and so much more!

Annual membership costs only $5.00. Fill out this form and drop off or mail to Aram Library.
