Perhaps no place in any community is so totally democratic as the town library. The only entrance requirement is interest.

A Note from our President!

Dear Friend:

As has been true since its opening, the Pace Library is widely used and enjoyed by our community. Friends of the Library can take pride in the support provided for extra programs and services funded by your donations. Friends of the Library can take pride in that record, made possible in part by the extra programs and services funded by your donations.


Now it is time for the Friends of the Pace Area Library to renew their annual commitment. Memberships and donations are an important element of our annual fund raising. This year raising funds is even more of a challenge than in the past, so I urge that you not only renew your membership but also consider adding a donation.

As in prior years, during 2017 the Friends will sponsor the very popular children’s summer reading program and finance other materials and resources not covered by the state and county. During 2016 we were able to contribute almost $9,000 which included $3,000 in new and replaced equipment and over $1,700 in DVDs and CDs (breakdown attached).

With your help we can do even better in 2017.

The primary source of our funding is resale of book donations. Thanks especially to those of you who contributed to the library, donated books for resale, and purchased books from our sales shelves.

Book donations can be dropped off at the Pace Library any time of the year. The library keeps what they need for their own collection and passes the rest on to us. Your best price for the best resale books can be found at:


Please mail your dues, membership form, and any donation you would like to make to the address below. Donation levels are listed on the membership form.
