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

We are excited to welcome the month of June as our thoughts turn to the end of another school year and plans for summer vacations begin to take shape!  It’s also a very busy time at Aram Library as we kick off the Summer Reading Program filled with activities, prizes and fun for all ages!  We hope you will join us throughout the summer for 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 12th, 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 the 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 you dads and grandpas out there!

Hope to see you at the Library!

Let us be grateful to people who make us happy; they are the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom.  Marcel Proust
