Promoting Reading in Our Community


The Friends of the Center Moriches Free Public Library Inc. assists, provides and supports the Center Moriches Free Public Library whenever and wherever possible. Membership donations enable the FOL to purchase items and sponsor programs for the library throughout the year. This is why membership is so important to the livelihood of the library and its patrons.

How to Become a Member

Membership is a donation. You are not obligated to attend meetings or volunteer your time. Simply complete and submit the membership donation form, then sit back and watch your donation in action. Enjoy the many FOL sponsored programs and see new items purchased for the library. In addition, all new or renewed memberships get a chance to win a great prize in our quarterly membership raffles.

Join the Action Committee

To be more involved in the Friends, become an Action Committee member. You must be a paid member and attend at least three monthly meetings. Contact us via phone, mail, email, or drop us a line in the FOL donation mailbox next to the thrift shelves at the library if you are interested or would like additional information. Action Committee Members are eligible to vote on all FOL actions.

Meetings are held on the second Wednesday of every month, 7:00 pm, at the Center Moriches Library (no meetings in June and December).

Want to Volunteer?

Volunteers are Action Committee Members. As an Action Committee Member, you can volunteer for any FOL program or event and we are always looking for volunteers. We hope you will join us!

We could sure use your help!

The FOL Action Committee is full of new ideas while enhancing our tried and true programs.  We really could use some extra hands.  In particular, please contact us if you are interested in working with us on any of these very important programs.

  • Donated Books:  To maximize the donations we receive, FOL is looking for people who are familiar with the processing and selling used books online through Amazon, eBay, or an online buying site.
  • Bus Trips: We need people to assist in organizing our bus trips.  Most trips are one day, some are overnight excursions.
  • Fundraising:   Maybe you have some good fundraising ideas and skills. Not only are funds needed for the many items we provide to the library, it also supports our Scholarship Program.
