Friends of the Library

About

The Friends of the Merrimack Public Library (FMPL) is a group of volunteers interested in supporting, promoting and enhancing the services provided by our town library.  They are a recognized 501C-3 charitable organization so member due and donations are tax-deductible.

FMPL provides Merrimack residents with "Books for Babies" gifts, donations to local charities on behalf of the children who collectively meet Summer Reading Challenge goals, assistance with sorting and setting-up Book Sale donations, and subsidization for an array of educational and entertaining events.

Our assistance to the library and the Merrimack community depends largely on annual membership dues.  Your contribution of $10 or more makes you a member of FMPL.  Once you are a member, you'll receive email updates to keep you informed of events and volunteer opportunities.
