The Andover Friends of the Library (AFoL) are just as the name says -- friends of the Andover Public Library!  Join us!  This 401(c)(3) non-profit organization organizes fundraising events in support of the library throughout the year, including the annual Goods & Services Auction.  In 2019, AFoL raised money by selling bricks which could be engraved for our outdoor patio.  Please take a look at this lovely outdoor area the next time you visit the library. 

In addition, the Friends support the library by purchasing items which may not be affordable with our yearly budget from the town, including museum passes, large print books, audiobooks, book trucks, programs for the whole family, and whatever else might be needed.  Each December, AFoL welcomes children of all ages to the library as Santa & Mrs. Merry Claus visit the library.  During the summer, the Friends sponsor a goodwill concert for all town (and out-of-town) residents at the Andover Gazebo.  

If you would like to join the Friends, please consider becoming a member.  All you need to do is fill out this Friends of the Library Membership Form and return it to the library with your dues.  Thanks for being a Friend!
