About the Friends of the Library

The Friends of the Nashua Public Library is a nonprofit group that raises money for the library and encourages public support and use of the library. Here is the report of our activities and contributions from 2022

Some members of the Friends limit their involvement to a yearly financial contribution; others are active in book sales, fundraising, or cultural activities.


Drop into a meeting of the Friends (the second Monday of most months at 7 pm) to find out what they’re all about. All are welcome. You must register to get an invitation to the virtual event. Check the library events calendar to determine the date for each month.

The Friends annual meeting is held in the last three months of the year.

See the meeting schedule here.

Note that the Friends have no authority over what can be added to the library’s website.
