Our Purpose:
The Friends of Milton Public Library helps carry out the library’s mission of opening doors for curious minds, nurturing learning and creativity, creating opportunities, and enriching lives by bringing people and ideas together. They provide an extra level of support not possible through the library’s normal operating budget.

An elected board of trustees leads the Friends, and various committees—with the support of library staff—carry out the group’s goals and mission.

Money raised through membership dues, fundraisers, and other initiatives allow the library to operate at a higher level by offering additional services, materials, and programs.

You can help support your library by becoming a member now. Membership is vital to the health of any organization, and whatever level of participation you choose (dues paying only, selective project involvement, and/or active participation as a board or committee member), you’re guaranteed to meet new people and create new bonds with people you might already know. Furthermore, as a Friend, you will receive early admission to their book sales, be eligible for college scholarship opportunities, and be able to register in advance for special events.

Friends News:

  • SCHOLARSHIP:  The Friends awards a yearly scholarship. For this scholarship, the committee looked for students who have made the Milton Public Library a part of their educational and personal journey. The library offers several opportunities for students to volunteer, be a spokesperson for their peers, and make a difference at the library and in turn, for the community. The committee looked at a student’s commitment to the library through these opportunities, how he or she represented the library, and the connections made with staff and community members through their work. Beyond that, the committee looked for a genuine appreciation of the library and what it represents. They sought out students who utilize the library for personal growth in the areas of reading, life-long learning, and skill development through the library’s programs.
    • 2020 Recipient: Lily Gritzmaker
    • 2021 Recipient: Emily McNett
    • 2022 Recipients: Henry Collins and Alexander Tarnutzer
    • 2023 Recipients: Kennedy Carr, Holly Nguyen, and Samantha Berebitsky
  • GRANT: The Friends of Milton Public Library received a $2,500 COVID Impact Grant from First Community Bank. The grant will go towards helping  the library acquire a mix of resources ranging from additional online subscriptions to the tools they need to reignite the hands-on learning aspects of the SPARK and traditional programming for all ages.
  • GRAPHIC NOVEL COLLECTION: The Friends donated $1,000 as a nucleus for an adult graphic novel collection. 
  • STORY GARDENS BENCHES: The Friends sponsored six benches for Story Gardens, the library’s outdoor garden space.
