Friends of Farnham Library

An informal group who get together once a month to promote Farnham Library. Their aim is to support the library through running events and fundraising to enhance the service for the people in the local area. This includes supporting the Summer Reading Challenge for children each year and alongside that they have run numerous events including children's craft sessions, Halloween mask making and Punch and Judy.

They are always looking for good condition second hand children's books to sell to raise funds to run their events. If anyone has any books that they wish to donate please place them in the designated box in Farnham Library.

The Friends of Farnham Library are always looking to welcome people to join them who have a little extra time on their hands, an interest in helping Farnham Library and the work of the Friends.
