Libraries are an integral part of thriving communities and we do our part to help make sure our library is healthy and vibrant in the Goffstown community. We are an all-volunteer, nonprofit organization interested in the Goffstown Public Library. We strive to focus public attention on and stimulate use of the library. We also support the American Library Association’s Library Bill of Rights, which expresses the rights of library users to intellectual freedom.
The Friends sponsor or subsidize many library programs throughout the year and provide a presence in the library and greater Goffstown community.

Programs & Fundraisers
The on-going book sale on the 3rd floor of the library always has a great selection of books for readers of all ages. Our Spring Book Sale is usually during Goffstown’s Old Home Day, the first weekend in June & is our largest fundraiser of the year.
Once Upon a Pie…
This annual pie baking competition and auction is a fun & delicious fundraiser.
Knit & Crochet Club
Friends’ member Karen Heise facilitates a monthly knitting and crochet club. Crafters of all abilities are welcome!
By recycling your used ink cartridges and old cell phones or electronics at the library, you also help support the Friends. Just drop off your items in the box at the circulation desk, or bring them to one of our meetings. Small ink cartridges only please, no toners (only cartridges that are small and can fit in the palm of your hand).
