The Mission of the Friends of the Peabody Public Library is to support the library as it strives to encourage literacy, lifelong learning, and the love of reading throughout our diverse community. We seek to enhance the library resources, increase the community's access to information and knowledge, and provide for a vibrant cultural gathering place.
The Friends of the Peabody Public Library is a non-profit group of public spirited citizens established in 1997 who value the educational role played by the library in the life of a progressive community and enjoy working together to make it the best library possible for people of all ages.
The Friends of the Library have monthly meetings, participate in the annual Salute to Veterans, have books sales and present interesting speakers for the Library. In the past the FOL have purchased the flag pole, digital camera, gaming hardware, picnic tables, book carts, Evergreen Indiana T-shirts, book bags, meeting room tables and financially support the Summer Reading Program.
Donate books (adults and children), DVDs, or CDs to the Friends Annual Book Sales - just drop them off at the Peabody Public Library any time during the year.
You can also attend one of our monthly meetings (held the 4th Wednesday of every month in Community Room A).
A form is available at the main checkout desk at the library for those who would like to join the Friends of the Library, volunteer, or learn more about us.
