Tax deductible gifts to the Friends of the Thomaston Public Library make it possible for us to provide programming including our popular Intergenerational Book Club and Friday night movies, purchase compelling books and DVDs, offer public computer and wireless internet access and offer a comfy ambiance where friends can meet, enjoy knitting on Tuesday mornings or just catch up on the latest newspapers and magazines.


TPL has a great team of employees working to grow our collection, provide thoughtful customer service and develop community programming.


We have  two endowments helping to support operating costs and collection developments at TPL. Though generous, the endowments are no longer able to cover operating costs and are supplemented by the town for which we are extremely grateful. The endowments and town funds cover the basics. Gifts to the Friends of TPL provide the extras, such as Kindles, books for our book groups, seating for the Friday night movies and library-sponsored events, insurance and licensing for programming and the ability to offer our exciting summer program for children called 40 Days of Summer.


Your support plays a critical role in helping Friends of the TPL enrich the level of service TPL provides to Thomaston, surrounding peninsular communities and our summer friends. We hope that you will be able to support our mission.
