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

Winter is here! If you’re looking for an entertaining book to read, a good movie to watch or an interesting program to attend, check out Aram Library! It is definitely a warm and fun place to be.

And if the spirit moves you to start your Spring cleaning early, we’d like to remind you that the Friends continue to welcome all your gently used books, movies, music, and games! New donations continue to be added to our perpetual sale shelves near the parking lot entrance (where you’ll find a nice variety of readable treats for your special Valentine) and our carts near the elevator on the main level! Also, for the young readers, we now have a cart of juvenile and teen books downstairs in the hallway just outside the Children’s Library.

As always, if you have questions or need additional information about us, please e-mail us at: or leave a note for us at the main desk.

Wishing you sunshine and warmth throughout this month of February and a fun and Happy Valentine’s Day! Hope to see you at the Library!
