What do the Friends do?

The Friends of the Newfields Public Library raise money to help support the Paul Memorial Library. They provide many materials and services that we could not otherwise afford. Because of their hard work, the following are available for all patrons:

  • New DVDs each month.
  • Museum passes to the Children’s Museum of New Hampshire (Dover), the McAuliffe Shepard Discovery Center (Concord), the Seacoast Science Center (Rye), and the SEE Science Center (Manchester).
  • Magazine subscriptions.
  • Beautiful color bookmarks with our library hours and magnets for your fridge!
  • Welcome gift for new residents.
  • Support for our Summer Reading Program for children.
  • The quarterly newsletter mailed out to all households.
  • Tote bags for sale (available at the library).
