Friends of the Library
Meeting Time:  Third Tuesday of the month at 7:00 p.m. (Friends do not meet January through March, July and August)

We are dedicated to encouraging and supporting volunteerism and fund raising for the specific purpose of enhancing benefits to the library membership and promoting a broader sense of community within Gardiner.

Anyone of any age is welcome to be a Friend.

Fund raising events:

Jewelry Sale – November
There are hundreds of pieces of jewelry to choose from. The selection runs from costume jewelry to estate jewelry with prices starting a $1 (sometimes less!). Have fun searching through to find special treasures. Look for the treasure chest on the library counter to make your jewelry donations.  Donations accepted throughout the year.

Holiday Wreath Sale – December (on the first Saturday)
A variety of poinsettias and wreaths plus other holiday surprises are available at reasonable prices.
