Friends of the John Curtis Free Library

Friends of JCL

The Friends of the John Curtis Library is a group of library volunteers who work together to raise funds to support and enhance library services in Hanover. Proceeds from the Friends’ fundraisers pay for passes to local area museums and zoos, as well as a number of special events and programs for adults and children.

Your donations allow us to enhance many library services:

  • Passes purchased for the New England Aquarium, the Institute of Contemporary Art/Boston, Mystic Aquarium, the South Shore Natural Science Center, and Zoo New England
  • Thousands of dollars worth of programming allocated each year for adults to include concerts and author talks
  • Thousands of dollars worth of programming allocated each year for children to include puppet shows, animal programs, and Spanish classes
  • New resources acquired like improved seating in the large gathering room and the Wii game for teens
  • Established a Hanover Teachers’ Book Acquisition fund in which books are added to the library’s collection in support of the school curriculum.
