All people in the library must wear masks.

Due to updated information we are requiring all staff and patrons to wear masks inside the library regardless of vaccination status.

The library director and board of trustees of the library reluctantly accepted Assistant Librarian Tracy Spencer’s resignation today, Saturday, July 24. Tracy has been a dedicated employee at Friend Memorial Library for almost nineteen years. Her duties were many, and included the circulation desk, organizing interlibrary loans, and perhaps most importantly, welcoming patrons.
We are extremely grateful for her time and experience and wish her all the very best in the future.
