Friends of Aram

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 entertaining and interesting surprises that have been planned just for you.  As in past years, the big 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 13th, 8 a.m. to 3 p.m.  Another big white tent and many tables will be set up on the Library’s front lawn.  We always welcome volunteers to carry boxes of books from the Library for set-up and back into the Library for break down!  The morning shift starts at 6:15; afternoon shift begins at 3:30!  Please contact us at if you can give us a hand!

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!
