It is time for bi-annual elections.
If you are interested in serving as an officer for the Friends group, we need to hear from you at our Nov 5 meeting (Library Community Room 6:30 pm)! Nominees must have been a member for at least one year and not be employed by the Library or serving as a current Board member. The slate of officers will be formed at the Nov 5 meeting and presented for vote at the meeting on December 3. Officers serve for two years.

Don’t want to be an officer? Come out to our meetings anyway – we are always looking for program and committee volunteers!

30 years ago, In December of 1983 a few concerned library patrons formed the “Friends of the Grafton Public Library”, a support group to help the library through volunteer work and fundraising efforts.  They hosted their first function at the “Old Fashioned Christmas Night” December 9th 1983, serving punch and cookies, inviting attendees to join the newly formed group.  The first official meeting of the “Friends of the Grafton Library” was held January 23rd, 1984.  Officers were elected and the By-laws were adopted.
