Friends of the Library

The Friends of the Goshen Public Library were re-established in May of 2002. Money raised by the Friends of the Library is used to sponsor programs and events throughout the year, and to finance special needs of the library.

The Friends of the Goshen Library's annual Book Sale is held each year at the Goshen Fair on Labor Day Weekend. Donations of used books in good condition are always welcome and can be dropped off at the library during regular business hours. No magazines or textbooks, please. If you have a great many books and need to have them picked up, you can contact the Friends of the Library to make arrangements.

Are you interested in holding office in the Friends of the Library, or becoming a more active member? We need lots of help to accomplish our goals in the coming year. Contact the library at 860.491.3234 to find out how you can help!
