Friends of Aram

With the arrival of the new year and now the vaccine, the Friends are looking forward to new opportunities and to cautiously embracing and enjoying some of the many wonderful events and programs we’ve had to postpone in 2020.

Our Friends’ in-house sale of gently used books and movies for adults, teens and children continues on special shelves and carts throughout the Library.  Prices range from $1 for hardcovers, $.75 for trade paperbacks and soft covers, and $.50 or 3/$1 for children and teen books.  Currently, we have a special sale on DVD’s – buy three for $1 each and get the fourth one free.  Special Boutique items (T-Shirts, Totes, Notes, all with the image of the Library) are available as well.

Also, we are again receiving donations for these areas, as well as for our big outside summer book sale on August 14th from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m.  Please feel free to drop them off in front of the sale shelves on the right as you enter off the parking lot.  If you need help unloading or getting your donations to the Library, please leave your name and phone number at the main desk.  A Friends’ Board member will be in touch.

As always, if you have questions, a special request, or need additional information about us, you can reach us at: or leave a message for us at the Library.

We are grateful to the Library Board, Director and all the Librarians for working tirelessly to keep the Library open and provide us with all the help, special care and reading/viewing material that has been so welcome through a difficult time.  Our journey isn’t complete yet, but there is hope on the horizon.  Please continue to be safe and well in the meantime.
