What We Do - How To Join

The Friends of the Chatham Area Public Library help make special things happen at CAPLD. 

You might be most familiar with the bi-annual book and bake sales.

You might know about the Friends Café and Bookstore, which is staffed by volunteers and has great donated books at great prices.

The Friends of the Chatham Area Public Library are that and a whole lot more.  Some of the other things the Friends do to make the library services better for its patrons include:

  • Hosting the annual Murder Mystery Play
  • Sponsoring the Summer Reading Program
  • Providing volunteers to help with various library programs
  • Sponsoring Stargazing events
  • Sponsoring the Library on the Go digital downloading database
  • Providing computers and equipment for the library
