Support the Friends
The Friends of the Georgetown Peabody Library, a 501c3 organization of volunteers, has been in place for 60+ years and continues to fund or subsidize the library’s activities. Contributions to the Annual Appeal are accepted at any time.
Come take a look at the Book Nook. It’s to the left of the Circulation Desk at the Library. You’ll find gently used and nearly new books on sale at very reasonable prices. The Friends take great care on updating the Book Nook with any donations from the Book Sale so come stop by.
