A volunteer group that hosts public events to benefit the Library

Friends of the Montgomery Town Library is a volunteer organization created to increase funding opportunities for our community library. Currently the main sources of income are from the town and the annual silent auction. The “Friends” organization has non-profit status, making us eligible for grant opportunities not available to the Town Library.

Membership and donations are also tax deductible. Our goals are to:

  • Raise money above the operating budget.

  • Provide additional programming.

  • Help with the library “wish” list.

  • Build community support for the library and awareness of all that it provides.
    Consider joining us and becoming a member of “Friends of the Montgomery Town Library.” Your support is vital to our success. "Friends" applications can be obtained at the library, on bulletin boards around town, or printed from this link:  Friends of the Montgomery Town Library Form.
