Who We Are and What We Do!


For over 30 years, the Friends of the Rice Public Library have been advocating for and supporting our town library. Friends educate the community about the needs of the Library and have been stalwart advocates for a permanent Library building.

Friends also raise funds to supplement the library budget. Some Friends are active members year round, while others choose to serve on a committee, volunteer at the Library, or participate at specific events. Friends currently:


Deliver books to Meetinghouse Village and Kittery Estates.
Volunteer at Family movie night and story time events at Kittery Estates.
Organize events with speakers.
Schedule fund raising events.


Through these activities, the Friends have raised funds for 9 museum passes, children's programs, large print books and furniture for the children's department.

The Friends meet on the Second Thursday of the month at 5:00 p.m. at the Library.

New Friends are always welcome. If you'd like to work with a great group of people, and help support your public library, you can join the Friends.  To download a membership form click here:
