The Friends is a group of individuals that have come together for the betterment of the Thurmont Regional Library. Collectively, the group supports library programs that otherwise simply would not happen.

Through monthly meetings, efforts are coordinated with the library staff to ensure our resources are put to the best possible use.

Tax dollars are not used for the “bells and whistles” often associated with public libraries. Private contributions and fundraising, managed by the Friends, enable our library to offer a higher quality of programs and services than would be otherwise possible.


Friends of the Thurmont Regional Library is a volunteer organization committed to promoting, preserving, and strengthening the Thurmont Regional Library.
