Friends of The Library


The Acton Library Friends is a non profit organization who believe that the Library is an essential resource for the citizens of Old Saybrook. 

The Friends provide support to the Acton Public  Library in a variety of ways. Our fundraising efforts underwrite library programs and other items not covered in the town’s library budget.  The Friends organize and run the popular Used Book Sale every summer and various pop-up sales throughout the year.    We also engage in special projects that enhance the Library’s mission.
