Friends of the Library

The Friends of the Ledyard Library is a community membership organization that supports the Bill and Gales Ferry Libraries. The Friends use funds raised through book and coffee sales, special events and dues to support programs, purchase equipment, museum passes and other items that benefit all library patrons. Friends enjoy early, members-only admission to book sales and dues are fully tax deductible as a charitable contribution for federal income tax purposes. New members are always welcome. Join Today!

Next Friends of the Library meeting will be on Thursday, April 22, 2021 at 7 PM. Look for the Zoom link as we get closer to the date on the library’s homepage under “What’s New.”

A Word from the Friends, December 2020:

Join us for our winter meeting at which we will discuss our plans for 2021. The Zoom Link for the meeting will be available on the Library home page.
Congratulations to Linda DeRose for a great Books and More Silent Auction! Thank you, Linda, the library staff, and all of the volunteers that assisted, for all of your hard work. Thanks to all those who donated items for the silent auction. And finally, thanks to all of the patrons who supported this important event. All proceeds go directly to support the Ledyard Library. Many worthwhile enhancements to enrich the patron experience such as Hoopla are made possible by Friends fundraising activities.
Stop by either Bill or Gales Ferry Library for your winter reading material! We have a great selection from our ongoing book sales at both locations.
We are now accepting gently used book and media donations at Gales Ferry Library.
Mark your calendars for the Friends Buy One Get One Free (BOGO) sale at both the Gales Ferry Book Cellar and Bill Library ongoing used book sale locations. The BOGO sale will take place during the week spanning February 22 through February 27. The sale will be held during normal library hours, so be mindful of the schedules at Gales Ferry and Bill Libraries.

I wish everyone a great holiday season. I look forward to seeing you at the library!


Harry Pearson, President,

Friends of the Ledyard Libraries
