Meeting Schedule

Monthly meetings are held at the Library at 3:00 pm, second Thursday of the month.  If you have ideas for the library or want to lend a hand, just stop by our next meeting.


The mission of the Friends of the East Rochester Public Library is to share gently used books with others for a minimal price and to spread the love of reading.  The money received will be donated to the East Rochester Public Library to supplement its needs. 


Book Nook

The Friends of the Library now have their very own Book Nook. A long awaited goal, the Book Nook comfortably stores and sells the ample supply of used books the Friends sell to finance the gifts and programs they provide to the library.

Thursdays          5:30pm-7:30pm

Donations are accepted at any time and can be dropped off at the library.  Book sale donations should be in relatively good condition.  Please no encyclopedias, text books, National Geographics, Readers Digest condensed books, VHS tapes, or outdated travel guides.  Donations should be in boxes or bags for storage–no loose items.
