Friends of the Library

During the holidays the Friends are also offering Grinch books for sale below cost and we will have them again this year available at the Library starting November 30 at the usual cost of $5. (exact change or check necessary).

The Friends of the Library have placed 3 Little Free Libraries in Fairport Harbor over the past few years. These small libraries are available for all to “take a book, share a book” at all times. The LFL steward makes sure that the Little Library is supplied with a variety of books and that the structure is maintained. You can help by sharing books you no longer want to own; especially childrens and youth books. Visit one today at the corner of Vine & Prospect, 630 Plum St., or 113 2nd St.

This year our Grinch blanket raffle at the Library will run November 30-December 4. Each patron will receive “free of charge” one raffle ticket for each item checked out of the library during this period. The winner receives the Grinch blanket and a copy of the Grinch book.


The Friends of the Library are again accepting donations of materials for the book sale. Please contact the friends directly at fhfriendsol@gmx.us about where to drop them off. The library cannot accept donations in the building at this time.

The members of The Fairport Harbor Friends of the Library are strong supporters of the library and we are hoping that you will consider joining and participating in this group. The Fairport Harbor Library is a vital part of our community, providing resources that all in the village can use and enjoy. The friends group can help this valuable asset by providing funds for programs and resources that the regular library budget cannot provide.

We welcome new members at any time. Please print and fill out the membership form and drop it in the mail or return it to the library circulation desk. Membership forms are available at the library or a printable form is available below.
