The Friends of Cook Memorial Library provide enhancements of services at the library. The Friends raise funds through book, bake, and plant sales to augment programming, and buy books and furniture. We invite you to join us. Friends are always hoping for donations to support the library. Friends of Cook memorial Library is a 501c3 not for profit organization, and all donations are tax-deductible.

The Friends meet every other month of the year, on the second Tuesday at 6 PM, beginning in January.  Meetings are accessible on Zoom and in person at the library.
