What could be better than having a full-service free public library right on Main Street? How about a Book Bike that brings library services right to your doorstep? The Friends of the Willimantic Public Library are looking to acquire a Haley tricycle with electric assist and a cargo bin over the two front wheels. The bin will be loaded with books, a laptop, Wi-Fi hot spot, and all kinds of other materials for Library patrons of all ages. We are calling on the community to join this initiative by donating to the crowdfunding campaign that opens Monday, April 12, and closes on Tuesday, June 1. For project details and to donate, please visit www.Patronicity.com/WPLBookBike.
If you are interested in supporting the Willimantic Public Library by promoting its services and advocating for increased funding in the town budget, please become a member of the Friends of the Library. All are welcome. To pay your membership fee or donate to the book and program funds please use the PayPal or Square buttons above.

Thank you to our new sponsor, Stock 'N Lock Self Storage of South Windham, who has generously provided us with a storage unit so that we can collect books for a book sale.
Thank you to the Willimantic Food Co-op, Stop and Shop, Big Y, and BJ's for donating food and supplies for our December reception for Library Director Dan Paquette.
