Friends of the Goshen Public Library & Historical Society


The Friends of the Goshen Library and Historical Society is a non-profit 501(c) 3 corporation comprised of volunteers who support and further the activities of the Library. Through fund raising activities, the Friends financially assist in the promotion of Library services, purchase equipment and sponsor programs not included in the Library’s line item budget. Additionally, the Friends encourage volunteers to assist library staff, work with the Library Director and Board of Trustees to raise public awareness and stimulate the use of vast Library resources. An active Historical Committee is responsible for sponsoring author lectures, local history talks and slide shows, plus programs of regional significance to entertain as well as educate the community. The popular, well attended book sales generate revenue while providing a venue to recycle gently used materials.

A Junior Friends group comprised of energetic, creative teens encourages young people to support the Library through its innovative programming, assisting at book sales, preserving local history, and sharing a love for the Library with the community.

Both groups have elected officers, regular meetings, financial reports, and actively seek new members.
