Friends News


Did we just hear you say, “What Book Sale?” It’s true, the Friends were not able to hold our book sale in April. But we are hoping for a better time when we can all be together and enjoy our wonderful library. So, stay tuned to ongoing communications. And keep reading through your backlog…all those books you’ve been meaning to get to. We have lots of great books, music and movies in storage, ready to replenish your shelves. Above all, stay safe!
It’s going to be quite a while before the Friends can actively raise money for the Essex Library. In the meantime, you can help by doing your online shopping (you know you’re doing it!) at and choose Friends of the Essex Library as your charity of choice. Thanks and stay well!
