Friends of Castleton Free Library was formed in 2008 to support our town library by encouraging community involvement through promotion of the library, fund raising and programming.
A Steering Committee of 5-9 members meets monthly to organize the Friends’ activities.
In its efforts to build community, the Friends sponsor book sales, an Ice Cream Social, a monthly book group, the popular Science Pub series, Maple Social and Green-Up Day breakfast. We also participate in many town events including the 4th of July Parade, after-parade party and tree lighting ceremony.
Friends’ donations have paid for furniture, subscriptions to magazines and newspapers, and passes to area museums and attractions.
Thanks to a generous bequest from Denise Nangle – a supporter and volunteer at the library – the Friends are currently partnering with the library in a major construction effort that will make the building accessible via an elevator.
We welcome your participation and support. For information about upcoming open meetings and events, please refer to our Facebook page at: https://www.facebook.com/friendsofthecastletonfreelibrary
