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.

Friends of Aram Library Monthly News & Views

We are excited to welcome the month of June as we close another school year and look forward to summer vacations! It’s also a very special time at Aram Library as we kick off the highly popular Summer Reading Program filled with activities, prizes and fun for all ages! Join us throughout the summer and experience all the neat surprises that have been planned just for you. As in past years, the big colorful tent (sponsored by the Friends) will appear soon on the lot just south of the Library parking area to accommodate many of these great programs.

Summer also means ‘book sale’ for the Friends. This year’s date is Saturday, August 11th, 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. We’re already busy sorting donations for the big day! Please remember us if you’re looking for a new home for your gently used books, movies and music.

Just a reminder, if you have a special request or need additional information about Aram Friends or our programs, please contact us at
Wishing you a summer filled with good friends, good times and good reads! Congratulations to our graduates and a Happy Father’s Day to all!

Hope to see you at the Library!
