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

With snow and April showers hopefully behind us, we are happy to welcome the merry month of May! If you’re looking for new reading material or ideas for your garden, please check out our perpetual used book sale shelves and carts where we offer a wide range of fiction, non-fiction, hardcover and paperback books. The material is changed regularly as new donations are received.
As the temps get warmer and our days sunnier, you may find yourself in the mood to get out and explore our area! If so, Ginny Hall has written many helpful booklets to guide your way. These include 12 different “Meandering Around Walworth County” Auto Tour Guides, a series of 5 “Walking Lake Geneva,” and 10 “Walking Around Town” booklets with information covering Delavan, our Business District, and many of our neighboring communities, including Darien, Elkhorn, East Troy, Fontana, Lake Geneva, Sharon, Whitewater and Williams Bay. These are available at the Library’s main desk and are individually priced at $2 and $3.50.
If you have a special request or need additional information about our items for sale or the Friends in general, please contact us at
Wishing you warm breezes and long awaited spring blossoms to enjoy! This month, best wishes for a Happy Mother’s Day and a Happy Memorial Day to all, as we offer special thanks and recognition to our veterans, military and their families.

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
