The Friends are committed to raising funds for the Library. Below are our traditional fundraisers.
Interested in volunteering? Email the Friends at firstname.lastname@example.org or call the Library at 384-3308.
Annual Fund Drive
The Friends of South Berwick Library conducts an Annual Fund Drive in the fall for support of the Library and its programs. Now that we have a big and beautiful space, there are expanded opportunities for the Friends of the Library to support services and programs. The Friends will continue to raise money to help sustain a full-service Library.
A yearly donation to the Friends’ Annual Fund Drive will help us provide equipment, services and programs to enhance the offerings of our Library.
The Friends host Bake Sales, raising an average of $1500/year for Library programs.
- June Voting Day
- Lanternfest (August)
- November Election Day (except in Presidential election years)
We seek volunteers to make calls, bake goods, and work at the table.

Who would think that over $20,000 could have been raised from donations of items “smaller than a breadbox”? That is what has happened in less than five years and has been a major contributor to the Building Fund for the new library.
The Capital Campaign Committee is extremely grateful for the time and efforts of the eBay Committee. What started as a $5,000 goal turned into a $10,000, $15,000, then $20,000 goal! They had momentum, and just wanted to keep going: gathering, listing, and shipping items to customers all over the world. Boundless thanks to Sally Hunter, Charlene Belliveau, and Janet Gaudette, Friends in deed!!
If you are interested in donating to the eBay fundraiser, please contact Sally Hunter, pictured here.

The Friends are always at the Strawberry Festival! We provide information about Library Programs, hold a face painting fundraiser, and ask visitors to take a guess at “how many jellybeans are in the jar” to win a free book!
We seek volunteers for two-hour stints to represent the Friends at our booth, and volunteers to support the Strawberry Festival Committee with bucket washing (Thursday evening), hulling (Friday morning), shortcake slicing (first thing Saturday morning).
