The Friends of the Scarborough Library (FOSL) is committed to supporting the Scarborough Public Library and to increasing public awareness of the many benefits the Library offers Scarborough's growing community. The Friends is a 501(c)(3) organization. Memberships and other contributions are tax deductible to the full extent of the law. We invite you to join us in our mission.
Through membership fees and fundraising efforts, the Friends support the Library with donations that purchase books and other materials for the Library's collection. We provide funding for the Children's Summer Reading Program, and we also provide discount passes to the the Maine Wildlife Park, the Children's Museum of Maine, Willowbrook Village and the Portland Museum of Art. Eligible cardholders may borrow passes at the Library circulation desk. More information about Museum Passes can be found here.
The Friends organize and fund events offered free-of-charge to the community. Our programming reflects the interests of both adults and children. Read more about the Friends.
Become More Involved In Friends of Scarborough Library
The Board of the Friends is looking for some people who would like to become more involved with Friends by becoming a member of our Board. We voted to change our meetings to evenings in hopes of attracting a larger demographic. Our Board meetings will now be on the second Thursdays of the month at 6:30-8:00 p.m. in the Library. We would love to hear from some of you who have questions about the Board, what we do, and how you can become a Board member. Email us via the email contact at the bottom of the page.
The Friends of Scarborough Library is a charter member of Friends of Maine Libraries, whose mission is to support and advocate for all Maine libraries, and to serve as a resource for existing and evolving Friends groups.
