Who are the Friends of the Library in Pelham?

The Friends are an all-volunteer, non-profit organization that has been providing support services to the library since 1976. Our mission is to promote understanding and appreciation for the services and programs the library offers. We actively seek fundraising opportunities so we may sponsor programs and help to support new library services, programs, technologies, and special presenters the library could not normally afford with their limited budget.



President: Raymond Graham
Vice President: Jenn Howes
Secretary: Jessica Wilhelm
Treasurer: Jane Beane
Membership Coordinator: Laurie Paradis


Join us! Annual membership is just $15.00.



Simply fill out a membership form at the library and drop off your membership dues at the main circulation desk. Membership form can be found at bottom of page.


Why join the Friends? Your membership demonstrates to the community that you feel the library is an important institution in the life of Pelham. As a Friend, you can limit your involvement to a yearly monetary contribution, or you can become as active as you like in the Friends’ fundraising and cultural activities. Membership also gains you access to the library’s reduced admission Museum passes.


The Friends meet the second Thursday of every month at 6:00 p.m. in the library.

The Friends of the Library in Pelham, Inc., is a tax-exempt 501(c)(3) charitable organization. Your contributions to the Friends are tax-deductible under section 170 of the Internal Revenue Code.
