FRIENDS OF THE SNOW LIBRARY is a non-profit 501c(3) organization which supports the Snow Library, its Trustees and staff with programs, activities, books and equipment not provided by town appropriations. The Friends provides a cultural bond with the citizens and visitors of Orleans through programs like Lifetime Learning, Book and Author Luncheons and many others.

The Friends is the fund raising arm of Snow Library. Monies are raised through the use of the copy machine, book sales and other events. These funds assist with technical upgrades and allow for the depth and breadth of a collection unusual for a library of its size.

Snow Library has the distinct honor of being designated a Star Library by the Library Journal's Index of Public Library Service

The Snow Library was created in 1876 through David Snow’s gift of $5,000 to the Town of Orleans “for a public library, to be open to all the people residing in town at all proper hours”. Today, Snow Library serves all who enter its doors and honors David Snow’s legacy by providing high quality service and excellent resources.

The Life of David Snow: Poverty to Plenty is a biography of David Snow. Click here for information about this book
