Friends of the
Amesbury Public Library
Our mission is to support the Library, its staff and its programming. We do this through holding events and fundraisers, and volunteering our time. We help to promote the Library as a vital resource in our community. Some of the programming that we fund include genealogy programs, museum passes, speaker events, summer reading programs, technology and more!
The Friends run the used book store downstairs at the Library. Come visit! You’ll find a wide selection of books, DVDs and other media for sale. We also welcome book donations; read the guidelines for donating.

The mission of the Friends of the Amesbury Public Library, as a volunteer organization, is to support the Library and staff, to enhance the resources and services of the Library, and to enrich our community. We focus our attention on the local and extended community of library patrons and accomplish our mission through collaboration, fundraising, allocation of funds, and sponsorship of programs for the community.
As Friends of the Amesbury Public Library, we believe in: literacy, life-long learning, and the enjoyment of reading. We also believe that the Library is more than bricks, bookshelves, and whispers; it is people, programs and an island of trust. These fundamental beliefs underlie and support our commitment to fulfilling the Mission of the Friends of the Amesbury Public Library.
