Our library always welcomes new friends of all ages. We encourage everyone to consider joining the Friends of the Gilman Library.  Throughout the years, the Friends of Gilman Library have sponsored numerous fundraisers and programs to benefit the library.  Founded in 1980, the Friends have proven to be a real asset to the library. Being part of this wonderful group is a great way to be together with old friends, meet new people, support the library, and give back to the community. As is the case for many of us, it can be difficult to find the time to fit one more thing into our busy schedules. However, we would like to get this group going strong again. If interested, please visit the circulation desk, give us a call, or send us a quick text or email. We would be more than happy to add your name to the sign-up sheet. You will be asked to provide your name, contact number, and the time of day that is most convenient for you to attend a meeting. Please consider joining us as we make new friends. Feel free to encourage your friends to take part in this wonderful opportunity that is sure to benefit everyone involved!
