Advocacy: A Friends group serves as an informed citizen's lobby that supports the library when necessary.

Fund Raising: A Friends group supplements what cannot be provided by the normal library budget. Fundraisers can be held or friends can play a role in encouraging donations.

Volunteer Work: Friends offer their time and energy for special projects and events like working at the annual book sale or improving the appearance of the library. The Library has for some time provided outreach services to the St. Regis Nursing Home abd Laurel Terrace Senior Citizens High Rise. The Friends have extended this program by bringing books to the Highland Nursing Home.

Programming: The Friends group sponsors special programs like hosting a visit by an author or working with the librarian planning a special event.

Public Relations: Friends play a crucial role in promoting the services of the library.

Membership: Members of the Friends group encourage people to become library supporters and eventually members of the Friends organization.


Donate books, DVDs and other materials to the library. We add many donated items to our collection each year. If we don't add the items to the collection, they will go into the Friends of the Massena Library book sales to raise more money for the library.

Make a monetary donation to the Friends of the Massena Public Library or to the library directly. Any donation to the library or to the Friends is tax deductible and greatly appreciated.
