Hello...Thanks for stopping by the Friend's page. We welcome you and would like to tell you a little about us. The Friends exist because we love the Library and what it provides for all of us, and we're glad to be able to help with and sponsor a lot of what happens at the Library. The Sandwich Public Library is the heart of our community and we strive to support it in any way we can.
Specifically, we are involved in many activities such as author visits, book discussions, poetry, craft music, and cultural and film programs throughout the year for every age range. We puchase passes for museums and attractions on and off Cape for your use. We provide funds for furnishings, equipment, and devices that are available on loan and for use within our walls.
We have to raise funds in order to sponsor all of this. Helping tremendously are sales of used books, both on Saturdays in the downstairs Book Sale room and upstairs from the table near the Circulation Desk. We appreciate your donations of used books for these sales.
As needed, we have fund-raising events (like Mini-Golf and Brews for Books) that we hope are fun for everyone. News of these events can be found in the Library's weekly newsletter and on the Event tab on the website. Make it a point to help us keep the Library going and growing. Become a memeber of the Friends, and your membership dues will also help us with our mission.
Friends also volunteer our time to assist the Library Staff with various dutios. If you'd like to help out, just let us know.
We'd like to hear from you about any programs of museum passes or other activites you'd like us to consider sponsoring. We're here to provide what our patrons want, and we'd like to hear you suggestions.
The Board of the Friends appreciates the support and contributions from all our patrons and friends. Our web page gives you more information about our various projects. We hope you find things of interest.
If you would like to make a donation or become a member you can do that online or by sending a check to Friends of Sandwich Public Library, 142 Main Street, Sandwich MA 02563. Please make you check payable to Friends of the Sandwich Public Library. As always, we greatly appreciate your support.
