Who are the Friends?
We are a friendly and dedicated team of all ages who support the Beekman Library and recognize its importance to the community. The Friends give a voice to the message that libraries need support raising additional funds for valuable library services.
What do we do?
We help generate important financial assistance for the library through monthly book sales (books, CDs and DVDs at great prices held April through October), raffles, membership dues, cookies and candy sales and other fundraising events. We dedicate our time to planning, organizing, selling and reaching out to the community.
How can you help?
You can help in many ways.

Join as a working member. Donate your time to working with us on all activities and attend the monthly meeting the first Monday of each month. Our meeting time and location are posted on the Beekman Library calendar. Stop by to see us.
