Believing that free information to access and ideas is fundamental to an enlightened community, the Friends of Beebe Library enhance and promote the public library's role by: •advocating for Beebe Library, and public libraries generally, as important resources for a literate society. •sponsoring programs compatible with the Library's cultural, educational, and recreational role in the community. •raising and providing funds for services, equipment, and activities beyond the scope of the operating budget.
We support the programming of the Beebe Library by raising funds via memberships, our annual Book Sale, ongoing sales of merchandise. We advocate for the library's budget and services (ex: expanding Sunday hours). We promote the Library (and the Friends) at community events, such as the Festival by the Lake and new residents' meetings, and via our social media outlets. We work to increase literacy in the community and New England, beyond the effort of our Book Sale, by giving away thousands of books to teachers, small public libraries, and many charities.
