Our mission is to support and advocate for all Maine libraries, and to serve as a resource for existing and evolving Friends groups.
Incorporated in 1992, Friends of Maine Libraries (FoML) was founded by a committed group of library advocates from all three regional library districts, with support from the Maine State Library.
FoML has awarded over $20,000 in grants to Libraries and Friends groups from its membership revenues. These grants have enhanced library services and resulted in stronger library-community relationships that likely would not have been possible without FoML support.
Friends of Maine Libraries is a 501 (c)(3) organization. Contributions are tax deductible to the full extent of the law.
