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. Our other fund raising event is on Together Bennington Gives day, in November. Watch for updates on that fun event.

If you are interested in attending a meeting please contact the Friends

or fill out this form to be notified about upcoming meetings.

The friends could not function without the help of our volunteers.
