"A library is not a luxury but one of the necessities of life."

~ Henry Ward Beecher




Friends' appreciation evening


The Friends of the Norton Public Library are a non-profit organization designed to stimulate community interest in library services and to support the library in providing these services. Through a program of volunteer, promotional, and fundraising activities, the Friends help acquire important materials and equipment beyond the limit of the library's regular operating budget. They also aim to inform the community of the library's resources, services, and needs.


Friends' Meetings are held in the Community Room at the library at 6:30 p.m. on the first Tuesday of each month unless otherwise noted. Please check the calendar of events. Everyone is invited to join the Friends!
