The Friends are a separate support organization for the Library. We help purchase items that enhance the library programs. We meet two times a year and are looking for younger individuals to keep this organization going. The Book Sale during Bennington Daze is our busiest fund raiser and takes some time to set up and work. The Friends supply the desserts for the Lions Club Rib fed to be held September 25th, 2021. Our other fund raising event is Bennington Gives, November 29, 2021 with early giving on-line starting November 1. If you are interested in attending a meeting please contact the Friends firstname.lastname@example.org or fill out this form to be notified about the September meeting. The friends could not function without the help of our volunteers.
