Become a Friend of the
Kirkland Town Library

The Friends of the Kirkland Town Library are volunteers who help raise funds and awareness for the library. You probably know us best through our two largest annual efforts…the Used Book Sale in July and the Jewelry Sale in November. But we serve the library and the community in many ways throughout the year.

Being a Friend is a great way to meet others in the community who are interested in the programs of our Kirkland Town Library.

Becoming a Friend is easy, just send your name, phone number, and email address to Dave Smallen at with the subject line “Become a Friend.”
