The Friends of the Center Moriches Library

THE FRIENDS
The Friends are civic-minded neighbors who know that quality library service is important to their community.  Their goals are to support, improve and promote the library by enlisting public support, by informing the public of the library’s services and by raising money to purchase items for the library. 

Membership is open to everyone and we encourage anyone interested in supporting their library to join.  Members wanting to have a more active role in the Friends should also attend the monthly Action Committee meetings held in Meeting Room A, the 2nd Wednesday of each month at 7:00pm.  Attendance is not a requirement of membership.  The Friends do not meet in June or December. Call Rosemarie at (631) 874-3596 for information about or to verify meetings.

THRIFT SHELVES
The two Friends thrift shelves filled with books are located near the front desk and are available to the public year round.  Suggested donations are $1.00 for hard covers and 50˘ for soft covers and four per $1.00 for children's books.

Look for our SPOTLIGHT section, which has specific authors or subject matter for the month.  We hope you will enjoy this new feature.  Also, watch for our special "10˘ Sales" of thrift books.

Your donations are vital to our continued success and are always welcomed!  Books, DVDs, and CDs in good condition can be brought to the library all year long during regular hours of operation.  We cannot take magazines or encyclopedias as our space does not allow for their storage.

To make a book donation, bring your box or bag of books marked "FOL" and leave it in the corner next to the thrift shelf.
