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 2016 is The Underground Girls of Kabul by Jenny Nordberg, who will come to the library on September 30, 2016.

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.
