Friends of Pequot Library members are an integral part of Pequot’s mission to bring literature, music, art, science, and the humanities to the community. Without members’ support, none of what we do would be possible. As a thank you for all that Friends of Pequot Library members do for the Library, we offer numerous benefits at every level of giving.

Help is needed in all areas, and whether you have a couple hours a year or a couple hours a week, we will happily accept the time you have to give!

Special Events

Special Events are a vital component of Pequot Library’s fundraising efforts, helping the Library to raise nearly 70% of its annual operating costs. Each fundraising event – from galas to book sales – is an opportunity to engage and serve the community, as well as fund the services, programs, and exhibitions offered for free at Pequot Library throughout the year.
