Friends of the Library

In 2009, the Friends introduced a program to enhance the city’s Nashua Reads program with Beyond the Book, a presentation by the author of each year’s book. The selection for 2017 will be announced in early June of 2017.

The Friends hold an annual book sale in the spring. The next one will be held on April 28 through 30, 2017. In addition to the annual book sale, we sell on a continuing basis in our Booktique in the Library lobby. The profits from these sales, about $25,000 a year, fund programs and services at the Library.
