About The Friends of the Town of Chester Library

The Friends of the Library was organized in 1994 by members of the community who were instrumental in the establishment of the new Town of Chester library.  It is registered with the IRS under Section 501(c)(3).

The organization exists to coordinate the activities of persons interested in books, libraries and online access to information;  focus public attention on library needs, facilities and services; to conduct fund-raising activities to fund supplement the library’s town budget and provide additional activities and services; stimulate gifts and donations; and enrich the cultural opportunities available to the citizens of and visitors to the Town of Chester.

The Friends contributes substantially to the library through the purchase of newspaper and magazine subscriptions, acquisitions of books and electronic media, and computers and other equipment.  We also support children’s programs and the summer reading program.
