I hope you have had the opportunity to come in and look over the new building. The newly renovated library opened in December of 2001 and we are extremely proud of our new home.

Although we are very fortunate to have such a fine building, we are constantly looking for ways to improve our surroundings. The building was purchased from Bank of America, and we received a generous donation of furniture, but as with most things we are always in need of improvement.

This is where you can help the Library!

It is our hope that if you have a need to make a memorial or a gift to honor a loved one you will think of the Library as a worthy place.

“Friends of the Dunkin County Library” is a state and federal not-for-profit organization. All donations are fully deductible on income tax returns.

You too can help with the Library!
