Promoting Reading in Our Community

Mission Statement

The purpose of this organization shall be to maintain an association of persons interested in libraries; to focus public attention on the library; to stimulate the use of the library’s resources and services; to receive and encourage gifts, endowments and bequests to the library; to support and cooperate with the library in developing library services and facilities for the community; to lend legislative support where needed; and to support the freedom to read as expressed in the American Library Association Bill of Rights.

What We Do

Quality library service is important to our community. The Friends of the Center Moriches Free Public Library Inc. is a not-for-profit, charitable group of civic-minded neighbors formed to support the Center Moriches Library. FOL has provided many needed items for the library and conducted numerous library and community programs.

Friends of the Center Moriches Free Public Library

The 2019 Friends of the Library Week was celebrated with raffles, bracelet making, Haunted Tea, and pumpkin painting
for the children and local teens. FOL also assisted the library on shredding day and collected non‐perishable food items
for local food pantries. Programs already in place continued, such as, refreshments for Teen Movie Night, the Knitting
Circle, support of the 1000 Books Before Kindergarten program, Monday afternoon games, Poetry and Prose, planting
and maintaining the various plants and flowers in the library’s west garden, holiday gifts to library staff, and our outreach
programs, Library at the Laundromat and the Little Free Library. Our very popular bus trips, thrift shelves and book sales
continue to be big successes.

We look forward to 2020 with anticipation of a great year ahead for the library and its patrons. Please watch for all our program announcements on this website and in the Center Moriches Library Newsletters throughout the year.
