The Mission of the Friends of the Peabody Public Library is to support the library as it strives to encourage literacy, lifelong learning, and the love of reading throughout our diverse community. We seek to enhance the library resources, increase the community's access to information and knowledge, and provide for a vibrant cultural gathering place.
The Friends of the Peabody Public Library is a non-profit group of public spirited citizens established in 1997 who value the educational role played by the library in the life of a progressive community and enjoy working together to make it the best library possible for people of all ages.
We have book sales, present interesting speakers, sponsor classes and invite the public to the Saturday Night Movies with popcorn and drinks available. In the past, the Friends of the Library have purchased the flag pole, picnic tables, a digital camera, a Wii and XBOX 360 gaming systems used in the library for gaming, entertainment, and educational purposes. The Friends also helped with the purchase of other items, such as the popcorn popper for library programs.
Donate books (adults and children), DVDs, or CDs to the Friends Annual Book Sales - just drop them off at the Peabody Public Library any time during the year.
You can also attend one of our monthly meetings (held the 4th Wednesday of every month in Community Room A).
A form is available at the main checkout desk at the library for those who would like to join the Friends of the Library, volunteer, or learn more about us.
