Friends of the Ayer Library

The Friends of the Ayer Library raise funds for library programs and services. We are a major contributor to the Summer Reading Program, as well as the many free programs for all ages offered throughout the year.

Please join us – new Friends are always welcome! Annual dues are $10. To become a member:

News from the Friends of the Ayer Library:
At our final 2022 board meeting (October 12, 5:30 – 8 pm) we’ll elect officers for 2023. You may nominate yourself or someone else (with their consent, of course) by emailing friendsoftheayerlibrary@gmail.com. We’ll also take nominations at the meeting. Board job descriptions (including contact info for those currently in the position should you wish to talk to them directly) are at tinyurl.com/FALboardmemberdescriptions. We can head off one question right now:
Q) I’d love to volunteer but I don’t have much extra time.
A) Board members spend a range of time on Friends business, from two hours a month on up. Other than attending 2.5-hour quarterly meetings, the time commitment can be minimal and is dependent on the amount of time you can afford.

Not interested in a membership? You can still make a donation of support in any amount via PayPal or at the Ayer Library!
