Friends of the Effingham Library

The Friends of the Effingham Library was established in 2002 by a small group of residents interested in supporting the growth and development of the library. The Friends sponsor several fund raising events throughout the year to raise money for the library’s needs which are not covered under the town budget.


The Friends have used their efforts and funds raised to support or provide the following for the library:


  • New Circulation Desk

  • Summer Reading Programs

  • Bookcases

  • Copier / Printer

  • Digital Camera

  • Air Conditioner

  • Monthly Writer’s Night

  • Spring Workshops

  • Family Memberships to Regional Museums

  • Continuing Education for library employees


And so much more…
